Grey Cardigan:"Newsquest should be ashamed"

Press Gazette's columnist Grey Cardigan points out that the move by Newsquest in York to amalgamate the job of daily editor, managing director and weekly editor into the new role of managing editor will mean an industry first - a daily regional newspaper without a dedicated editor. As reported in the post below, Hold The Front Page revealed today 'Editors and MD to compete for single job' that in York, Press editor Kevin Booth, weekly editor Chris Buxton and managing director Steve Hughes have been made redundant and must now apply for the new managing editor's post. Grey Cardigan describes the move as an "utter disgrace" and says Newsquest should be "deeply ashamed". You can read his broadside 'Welcome to the editorless daily newspaper' here.
