NEW YORK - The Daily News of New York has hired Colin Myler as its editor-in-chief, an appointment that is certain to add spice to the newspaper's long and heated rivalry with the New York Post and its owner, Rupert Murdoch.

Myler, who replaces Kevin Convey, had long been a close lieutenant of Murdoch, serving as managing editor of the New York Post before he was brought to London to clean up the scandal-plagued News of The World in 2007. Myler oversaw the News of the World until the 168-year-old tabloid was closed this summer.

Since then Myler's relationship with the Murdoch family, and Rupert's son James in particular, has deteriorated into finger-pointing and accusations.
