Award-winning journalist Cate Brett has been appointed Editor of the Sunday Star-Times. Cate, currently Deputy Editor of the Christchurch Press, will take up her new job in November.

She has been with The Press since 1999 and has been editor of the Weekend Press since it was launched last year.

Cate, a graduate of Canterbury University, began her career in journalism at the Christchurch Star in 1987.

Terry Quinn, publisher of Fairfax Sunday Newspapers, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Cate as the new editor of the Star-Times. Her great experience in quality journalism will be invaluable as we continue to develop and improve New Zealand’s only national broadsheet newspaper.”

Cate Brett said: “The Sunday Star-Times has a talented team of journalists and is uniquely positioned to deliver the stories that matter to all of us. I relish the challenge of making this paper an essential part of New Zealanders' Sunday."

Peter O’Hara, Fairfax NZ Ltd Editor-in-Chief, said Cate Brett is a respected journalist who has contributed strongly to the development of The Press and Weekend Press. “Fairfax is proud to announce that Cate has been chosen to lead the Sunday Star-Times. As an accomplished journalist and experienced editor, she will ensure that Sunday readers have a high quality broadsheet newspaper.”
