Ted Thornhill joins from The Huffington Post UK, where he was a news reporter, and previously held positions at The Daily Mail website, Metro online and The Sun’s TV magazine during a 15-year career in journalism.    

Thornhill will report to Red’s Play division MD Isobel Coney, who heads up the team specialising in lifestyle and leisure.  
 
He will work across a range of accounts which include drinks, sport, travel, home entertainment and telecoms with a responsibility to drive coverage on- and offline, as well as providing the agency with news insights and consultancy.
 
Andrew Baiden, group MD, said that Thornhill had been employed across a range of fast moving accounts such as Amazon, which generate a large number of stories.
 
He said the agency wanted to bring in journalists from ‘select media every couple of years’ to refresh its writing and news credentials.

Coney said: ‘Coming from MailOnline and The Huffington Post UK, Ted brings current thinking from two of today’s most successful news businesses.

'With some of the most famous and newsworthy brands in the UK as our clients, Ted’s role will be to work with our clients and our teams to find even more story angles and headlines to drive coverage and engagement off and on-line.’
