Guardian appoints West Australian’s Sarah Martin as chief political correspondent

The Guardian has appointed West Australian’s federal political editor Sarah Martin as chief political correspondent.

Martin has been West Australian Newspapers’ federal political editor for close to two years, having been promoted into the role from her position as The Australian’s federal political reporter.

Prior to that, Martin worked at The Advertiser in Adelaide covering business and state politics.

She’s also been a director on the board of the National Press Club of Australia since 2015.

In a tweet, Guardian editor Lenore Taylor said she was “absolutely delighted” to welcome Sarah onto the team, which consists of political editor Katharine Murphy and political reporters Amy Remeikis and Paul Karp.

Mumbrella has approached Guardian for comment.
