Tim Shipman appointed Sunday Times political editor

By Darren Boyle

The Sunday Times has appointed deputy political editor of the Daily Mail Tim Shimpan as its new political editor.

Shipman began his career working at the Daily Express joining on a graduate training scheme in 1997 after reading history and international relations at Cambridge.

The following year he was made deputy foreign editor and covered the war in Kosovo as well as the impeachment of US President Bill Clinton.

He then covered the 2000 US Presidential election  before moving to the Daily Mail in 2005.

In spring 2007 he joined the Sunday Telegraph as their Washington correspondent before returning to Westminster as the deputy political editor of the Daily Mail in April 2009.

Sunday Times editor, Martin Ivens, said: "Tim will bring a wealth of both domestic and international political experience to The Sunday Times and is well placed to keep our readers informed in the lead up to the 2015 General Election. He joins in what is sure to be one of the most interesting periods in British Politics which starts with the Scottish Referendum this Summer"

Tim Shipman said: "It has been a privilege to contribute to the success of the Daily Mail over the last five years. Having worked for one organisation that believes in investing in journalism and robustly defending the freedom of the press I am thrilled to be joining another."
