Browne moves into top role

Bill Browne has been appointed publisher of Newsquest Salisbury.

Recently appointed to the editorship of the titles published by Salisbury Newspapers – including the Salisbury Journal and Avon Advertiser – he has now moved to the cathedral city in the top role and retains his duties as editor.

Previously he was editor-in-chief at Gazette Newspapers in Basingstoke, where he worked for six years after holding a number of senior editorial positions in Southampton.

Before joining the Basingstoke team in 1995, Bill had worked at Southern Daily Echo where he spent six years on the newsdesk, working his way up to news editor.

He was also previously editor of the Southampton Advertiser Series and has spent 25 years with the same company – joining Southern Newspapers, which became Newscom and was later bought by Newsquest.

Announcing Bill’s promotion regional managing director John Banks said: “I am sure you will join me in wishing Bill great success in his new role.”
