Johannesburg -'s Debora Patta has resigned as the editor-in-chief of eNews, The Star reported on Thursday.

She will remain on as executive producer of the current affairs show Third Degree.

"Given the pressures of producing an investigative programme and the demanding job as editor-in-chief, it would have become unsustainable to do both in the long run," Patta said.

The current news editor, Patrick Conroy, will take over from her.
