Marvin Meintjies has been appointed editor of the Sunday World from next month, Times Media has announced.
"Marvin is a robust and experienced journalist who will guide the newspaper to become a significant player in the Sunday market," general manager of newspapers Mike Tissong said in a statement.
Meintjies was appointed after former Sunday World editor Wally Mbhele took up an academic post late last year.
Meintjies helped with the launch of the newspaper and that of The Times, then took up a position as deputy editor of the Sunday Times in 2009.
He also has experience with The Star, and the United Nations humanitarian news and analysis service IRIN.
He began his journalism career at the Daily News in Durban.
Meintjies said in the statement he was excited about the new challenge.
"Sunday World is a newspaper with enormous potential," he said.
