Craig Thomson has been appointed as the new deputy editor of the Daily Liberal.

The job will see him move to Dubbo from Young, where he has been the editor at the Young Witness for the past 18 months.

Mr Thomson began his career in community newspapers in 1988, but also forayed into small business when he owned and ran an independent video store in Brisbane for 10 years.

“I think community journalism is really important and… I’m excited to be working with a team of young and dedicated journalists who think along similar lines.

“I’d like to help, along with our great team, make the Daily Liberal the news source of choice for residents in Dubbo and across the region.”
