Editors to go at Gazette?
We understand that the Western Gazette and other Trinity Mirror (now renamed “Reach” plc) titles in Somerset are planning to remove five of their editors in the New year. The matter has been discussed in the House of Commons having been raised by James Heappey MP and more recently at a meeting of Wells City Council. There will be a full report in the 15th December edition of the Leveller.
As it is, we understand, the roles that are being made redundant, it begs the question as to how the hard copy titles will function in the future, presumably without an actual editor.
Editing those press releases…very demanding…!
