Ex News Of The World Showbiz Editor, Rav Singh, has been snapped up by National Magazine Company.

He has been appointed as assistant editor (celebrity) at the company’s Reveal title.

He spent eight years at the News of the World, where he was showbusiness reporter of the year in 2004 for scoops about Heather Mills pregnancy and Zoe Ball’s private life.

“He has a brilliant contacts book, he’s one of the best, most experienced operators in the business and, on top of that, he is a really nice guy. He is going to be a fantastic addition to the magazine,” said the Reveal editor, Michael Butcher.

Singh added, “It’s great to be working for a dynamic magazine like Reveal. The magazine has so much potential and it’s an honour to join such an extensive celebrity team.”
