Geordie Greig is stepping down as editor of the Daily Mail after three years in the role.
He will be replaced by Ted Verity, the current editor of the Mail on Sunday, who will have overall responsibility for both papers.
Announcing the move, Lord Rothermere, chairman of the Mail’s owner DMGT, said Greig had been “outstanding”.
Greig – who will now become a consultant editor – wished the newspaper “continued good fortune”.
Eton-educated Greig joined the Daily Mail in 1983 as a junior reporter and has been its editor since 2018, when he replaced its long-running boss Paul Dacre.
He was previously editor of the Mail on Sunday and has also held editorships at society magazine Tatler and London’s Evening Standard.
