Colin Myler Named President of Daily News

Colin Myler goodColin Myler, editor-in-chief of The New York Daily News, has a new role — president. Capital New York reports that Myler — who once bluntly explained that the paper features stupid content because people like dumb things — will continue as editor.

Myler has been editor of the Daily News since January of 2012. He was previously editor of the now folded News of The World, which as you know, got into a bit of trouble with the law. Myler also spent some time as executive editor of The New York Post.

In a memo obtained by Capital, Bill Holiber, the Daily News’ CEO, said of Myler, “His stewardship and leadership of the Daily News editorial brand – both in the paper and online – has been outstanding. His extensive media knowledge and experience is an invaluable asset for our future growth.”
