Taylor left Fairfax Media in February 2013 to become the publication’s founding political editor.

The Walkley Award-winner, a former foreign correspondent who has been awarded the Paul Lyneham Award for excellence in press gallery journalism, made the announcement on Twitter on Friday. I’m excited and honoured to be the next editor of @GuardianAus after the wonderful @emilyhwilson and our founding editor @KathViner— Lenore Taylor (@lenoretaylor) May 20, 2016

Taylor told Guardian Australia the appointment was “a huge honour”.

“We’ve come so far in just three years and my aim is to expand our quality, independent coverage of all the issues that are important to our readers,” she said.

“I’m following two inspiring editors in Katharine Viner and Emily Wilson and I have the great privilege of leading a dedicated and talented team.”

Katharine Viner, the first editor of Guardian Australia, is now the editor-in-chief of The Guardian.

She said she “can’t wait to see” what Taylor does as editor.

“She is a brilliant journalist and the ideal person to take Guardian Australia to the next stage of its development,” Viner said.

Emily Wilson, who has been the editor for two years, is returning to London to be The Guardian’s assistant editor.
