Deborah Turness, currently head of ITN core news, has been promoted
to replace Mark Adams as deputy editor of Channel 5 News, which is
produced by ITN. Adams announced last week that he was moving to Euro
News, in which ITN holds a 49 per cent stake, to become editorial
director. Turness joined ITN in 1990. She worked on 5 News at its launch
in 1997, and became news editor in January 1999.
