Maguire landed the assignment following the end of HuffPost Australia’s partnership with Fairfax Media late last year. She was the HuffPost’s editor-in-chief for two years.

Her remit now covers federal politics, business and international coverage for the above papers. She is slated to begin on April 16, 2018, and will report to Australian Metro Publishing group executive editor James Chessell.

“Tory is an outstanding journalist with around two decades’ experience editing and reporting news and federal politics. She is a proven leader in digital publishing with an excellent track record of leading newsrooms and producing engaging journalism. Our newsrooms will benefit greatly from Tory’s expertise,” said Chessell.
