UTV in Belfast has appointed a new head of news and programmes for Northern Ireland. Terry Brennan from Dundalk, has worked for UTV's parent company, ITV, for 13 years, most recently as head of news at ITV Anglia.

Mr Brennan started his journalism career with the BBC in the East Midlands.

UTV said their latest recruit had been working with the UTV news team since ITV acquired the company in a £100m deal earlier this year.

"I am delighted to join UTV's strong news team which produces the most watched news in Northern Ireland," Mr Brennan said. "So far this year, UTV Live has produced some very strong programmes delivering excellent viewing figures and we hope to continue this trend into 2017.

"ITV is totally committed to providing local viewers with the same high standards of news and current affairs they have come to expect from UTV backed up by the best of regional programmes for the Northern Ireland market."
