Glen is currently the editor of stuff.co.nz, New Zealand's prominent news and information website. His previous roles include a stint as a chief reporter and assistant editor of the Waikato Times, and as a duty editor at CNN.

In making the announcement Radio New Zealand CEO, Paul Thompson, emphasised the importance of the new role in the public broadcaster’s multi-platform digital strategy.

"Glen will lead our digital media strategy and ensure we provide high quality, trusted and engaging news and information on our websites and apps and through social media.

Glen Scanlon says, as an avid listener, he is excited about the prospect of building on Radio New Zealand's unique position, international reputation, and its long history of telling great stories.

"I see so much opportunity to help ensure those stories take on a life of their own across every platform. I already have some ideas and I am also looking forward to working with everyone at Radio New Zealand to deliver our audiences high quality multi-media journalism and programming. " Glen Scanlon is expected to take up the new position in October.
