The current editor of the Nolan Show and the odd time has written some pieces for this website, David Gordon has been announced as the new NI Executive Press Secretary. David was often credited as the man responsible for conducting the in-depth research that saw many local politicians caught out on their figures during the now infamous manifesto interviews during election time.
Before moving to the BBC, Gordon was a Political Correspondent for the Belfast Telegraph and has written books such as the Fall of the House of Paisley.
David will now be charged with selling the work of the First and Deputy First Minister and will have to lead in how the government deals with the media in Northern Ireland.
