Newsquest York staff look at Press buy-out

Press Gazette is today running a story that journalists at The Press in York are looking at ways the paper could be bought from Newsquest.
It also reports that Press editor Kevin Booth and Chris Buxton, editor of the weekly Gazette and Herald have left the company and managing director Steve Hughes has been appointed "acting" managing editor. All three were made redundant and asked to apply for the one managing editor job.
Press Gazette says The Press NUJ chapel has asked the union's national executive to obtain a market valuation of Newsquest York Limited, and gauge the level of interest from the local business community in a buy-out.
