Peter MacMahon joins ITV Border
ITV News announced today that Peter MacMahon is joining ITV Border as Political Editor.
MacMahon is one of Scotland's most experienced political journalists.  He has been with 'The Scotsman' since 2005 working across the Scottish Government and Business briefs before rising to the rank of Deputy Editor.
"I'm delighted about the new job", said MacMahon. "We are entering arguably the most important phase in Scottish politics in a lifetime and I want to bring the facts to life and add context for the viewers."
ITV Border's Managing Editor, Catherine Houlihan, said: "Peter brings a depth of knowledge and experience to this important role and it's right that a journalist of his calibre should be the face of Scottish politics for ITV Border.  It demonstrates ITV's commitment to continuing our quality news service to the south of Scotland."
ITV Border's news programme, Lookaround, will return to covering solely the South of Scotland and Cumbria this autumn with 30 minutes of local news each weekday.
