Former Sunday Times editor Sir Harold Evans is to write an article for this year’s Local Newspaper Week on the importance of independent local journalism.
The article will be made available on the Local Newspaper Week website for editors to use in their titles during the 10-16 May Week, themed 'Your Voice'.
In his autobiography My Paper Chase, Evans writes about working in the regional press as an assistant editor at the Manchester Evening News and a campaigning editor of the Northern Echo. He says of working on the MEN: "Nothing before, and nothing I have experienced since, working for newspapers, radio, television and websites in London and New York and Washington, matches the speed demanded of everyone on the Evening News."
