Yorkshire newspapers to fall under remit of Scotland editor in chief

The Yorkshire Evening Post and Sheffield Star will now be the responsibility of an Editor-in-Chief, based in Edinburgh.

It comes after National World promoted the Yorkshire titles’ editors to group-wide roles.

Yorkshire Evening Post’s Editor, Laura Collins is now the Group’s Publisher, while The Star’s Nancy Fielder will be Editor-in-Chief of its World brands.

Claire Lewis, previously The Star’s Crime Editor has been promoted to its Editor, while Joseph Keith takes up the same role at YEP.

The City World branding has been rolled out in Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, London and now also Edinburgh.

As a result Euan McGrory, the current editor of Edinburgh Evening News has been promoted to Editor-in-Chief of City World Newspapers and takes overall charge of its titles in Edinburgh, Leeds and Sheffield.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me to help shape the future of some of the best known and most trusted brands in UK regional journalism,” said McGrory.

“The world and the way people want to consume their news has changed dramatically in just a small number of years, but newspapers in the UK have remained relatively unchanged during that time. The time is ripe to reimagine what a great city newspaper can and should be.

“Can our papers be even more relevant to our readers’ daily lives and more useful to them? Can they still entertain while continuing to do all those things that readers rightly expect of us, informing them about what is happening in their communities, celebrating their successes and fighting their corner?

“I think the answer is yes and I am looking forward enormously to working with our highly talented teams across the country to find out.”

Edinburgh Evening News’ current News Editor, Rhoda Morrison, who started her career at Bury Free Press, becomes Editor of the paper and will report to Fielder.
