GMTV Editor Martin Frizell Replaced

GMTV Editor Martin Frizell has been replaced by ITV Studios Head of Daytime, Sue Walton on an interim basis.

After 10 years as the editor of GMTV, Martin Frizell decided to step down saying: ?I?ve had a blast but it feels like this is a natural time to move on. We have achieved all that we set out to do, have won awards and made the sofa the institution that it has become.

?I wish Sue Walton all the very best. She inherits an amazing team. In front of the cameras, we have grown some of the best presenting talent in British television and behind the scenes GMTV has producers and journalists who are second to none.?

Neil Thompson, currently Regional Director for ITV Yorkshire, ITV Anglia, ITV Tyne Tees and ITV Border, has been appointed as Managing Editor of GMTV taking over from Peter McHugh, who announced he was stepping down as GMTV Director of Programmes earlier this year.

Thompson will take on Peter McHugh?s responsibilities for GMTV editorial and programming with a broader remit overseeing the ongoing review process.
