SCMP's editor-in-chief departs
Hong Kong - South China Morning Post's (SCMP) editor-in-chief Reginald Chua will depart by the end of March with Cliff Buddle (pictured) taking up the role of acting editor-in-chief.
Chua joined SCMP in July 2009 and has managed the editorial team with deputies Cliff Buddle and Wang Xiang Wei, as well as managing editor David Lague.
SCMP wrote in a statement that Chua has been "a valued leader".
Following his departure, Buddle will take up Chua's responsibilities supported by Wang and Lague.
"Having been part of the South China Morning Post team for 16 years, I am delighted to take on this new challenge," Buddle said.
"It's great to be a key part of Hong Kong's most trusted and respected newspaper, particularly at this time in the industry, when we're developing some exciting new product enhancements for our readers."
Recently the newspaper launched a few new topic pages on scmp.com including watches, travel and property and a new SCMP Facebook site.
