New Zealand Listener appoints new Deputy Editor

New Zealand Listener appoints new Deputy Editor

Multi-award-winning journalist Karyn Scherer joins the Listener as its new deputy editor after 15 years with APN, during which time she has been editor of the Daily Post in Rotorua and the launch editor of the Herald's weekly financial affairs magazine the Business. Earlier this year she won the Canon Print Media Award for best investigation for a series on the potential bidders for the Crafar farms.

The Listener is New Zealand’s highest-selling and best-read current affairs magazine, and editor Pamela Stirling says she is delighted to announce the appointment of such a high calibre journalist to the deputy editor’s position. “Karyn’s distinguished career has included everything from crime and business journalism to Maori affairs and political reporting, and she brings all that valuable experience to the role. She is the winner of many prestigious awards and it is a great pleasure to welcome her to the magazine. The team are very much looking forward to working with her.”

Karyn starts in her role on January 16.
