EDP and EADT Political Editor Annabelle Dickson has been promoted to the newly-created role of group political editor, Archant, with immediate effect.

Annabelle, who leads the lobby group of journalists at the House of Commons, has been political editor of the Eastern Daily Press and East Anglian Daily Times for the past two years and helped shape the coverage of the recent General Election across all of Archant’s newspapers and associated websites.

Archant Interim chief content officer, Bob Crawley, said: “Annabelle’s brief will now be expanded and, in line with the One Archant philosophy, she will give support and guidance to all our content teams helping further improve our political coverage.

“Her next project is party conference season, which starts next month. Once that is complete Annabelle, who already knows many of the MPs representing constituencies where we have titles, will talk with all our editors about her new role and how she can support them.”

Annabelle will continue to report to Nigel Pickover, editor-in-chief, Eastern Daily Press.
