FRASER Coast Chronicle editor Peter Chapman has been appointed as APN group editor for business, food, shopping and travel and will take control of that content across APN's stable of 14 regional and more than 60 suburban free papers.

As one of APN's most driven and energetic executives, Mr Chapman's new brief is to create content that carries these sections to a new level for the group's 1.1 million weekly readers.

Mr Chapman will also drive APN's digital presence in these areas and work on initiatives to create business opportunities around them.

"It's an exciting opportunity and, while I will greatly miss the opportunity to continue to campaign for this community, it was a challenge I had to accept," he said.

With an instinct for news and a willingness to fight for big issues and the common man, Mr Chapman's three-year tenure has seen the Chronicle twice short-listed as Australian Newspaper of the Year.

He has also been a vigorous advocate and activist within the community, creating initiatives such as We Care Bags, Clean up the Foreshore, Thug Watch, Cure the Crisis and Save the Maryborough 50 metre pool.

Current deputy editor Mat Nott will step into the role as editor of the Chronicle.

Mr Nott has a strong media pedigree. He has written for major metropolitan dailies and magazines and has been involved in radio and TV production in Australia and internationally over a period of 25 years.

Chronicle general manager Darren Bosley said the Fraser Coast Chronicle had become a stronger product thanks to Mr Chapman's influence in the past three years.

"But it will be his passion for the region and his positive influence for change the community will most want to thank him for during his time as editor," he said.

"Mat has a strong understanding for what is important to our local community and will make a great editor of the Chronicle.

"Under his leadership, our readers' voices will certainly be heard and actioned.

"We are fortunate he and his family have made a strong commitment to be part of the future of our media and region."
