JPIMedia has appointed a new Head of Audience for the south of England.

Daniel Bird has joined the regional publisher from Which? magazine where he was the Homepage and Channels Editor for the last year.

He previously worked as LeicestershireLive’s Digital Editor for three-and-a-half years and played a lead role in managing the online coverage of City’s title-winning season.

Daniel has also worked as a Digital Producer for ITV News and a Video Journalist for The Daily Telegraph.

The role will see him working closely with titles including The News in Portsmouth, Northampton Chronicle & Echo and Peterborough Telegraph.

He replaces Paul Fisher who joined Iliffe Media as Audience Development Manager earlier this year.

Martin Little, Director of Digital Content for JPIMedia, said: “Dan joins the digital leadership team at a key time for our business.

“His experience in delivering audience growth, reader-revenue models and quality content will be invaluable as we continue to transform our editorial teams to provide online journalism that our readers will pay for.

“I know everyone in JPIMedia will join me in welcoming Dan to his new role.”

Daniel said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining JPIMedia.

“I’ve already been able to meet a lot of my new colleagues at different titles in the south and I look forward to working with them closely to develop our digital offering.

“This is a great role and one that I’m really pleased to get started in.”
