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.

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.”
