Channel 4 News has appointed Hayley Barlow as its director of communications. Barlow was previously head of communications at the news channel.

Before joining Channel Four, Barlow, was head of communications at ill-fated Sunday newspaper, the News of the World. The newspaper was shut down after a phone-hacking scandal, which saw advertisers leave in droves.

Barlow is also a director at public relations firm Jubilee Communications. The London-based consultancy claims to offer specialist crisis management, media relations and social media expertise.

Channel 4 News is one of the UK's leading news programmes, often featuring stories covered in more depth than some of its rivals. The news channel also takes a bold and hard hitting approach to interviews.

Prolific London noticed, though, that the official press page of the news channel hasn't issued a news release since 1 December 2014.
