MEDIA: Financial Mail on Sunday recruits Tooher for news

Patrick Tooher this week joined the Financial Mail on Sunday as

news editor.



He replaces Russell Hotten, who left the post two weeks ago.



Tooher's remit covers business news, which takes up the front ten to 12

pages of the section.



Tooher left his last job, as Sunday Express business editor, in April

following the takeover of Express Newspapers by Richard Desmond's

Northern & Shell.



One source said he had run the business desk there 'virtually

single-handed'.



Tooher has expertise in industrial areas such as transport and

utilities, and will be doing some reporting in his new job.



But his main role will be as a motivator and organiser, one Mail on

Sunday source said this week.



Tooher will report to Mail on Sunday City editor Ben Laurance, who has

overall control of the section along with deputy City editor Lisa

Buckingham.
