The NFC World team is pleased to announce that we have a new editor, Christopher Brown, who is joining us from BBC News. Rian Boden, who has been reporting for NFC World since 2013, has been promoted to associate editor and founding editor Sarah Clark is moving across to publisher.
Christopher joins NFC World straight from BBC News Online, where he was a senior broadcast journalist, bringing with him a wealth of journalism experience and know-how from the highest level of the media industry.
As founder and former editor of Bristol24-7 — the independent online newspaper which twice won South West Regional Website of the Year awards and was runner-up in the UK’s national Online Media Awards for best regional online newspaper — he helped to pioneer online journalism and a sustainable business model for the news media.
He is also well-known to the NFC World team, having worked with us on two previous occasions as a news reporter and a sub-editor.
“Joining the NFC World team as editor, charged with developing an already successful independent publication, is a challenge and an honour,” says Christopher.
“NFC World has already shown over many years how its dedication to high-quality journalism and its innovative business model work together to create a strong, global publication that is in a fantastic position to grow with the needs of our audience.
“I am looking forward to meeting the many commercial partners who support NFC World and working with them to develop their businesses, as well as outlining our ambitious plans for the future.”
