Journalists put their best oars forward for charity gig

The Glenrothes Gazette has celebrated its 40th anniversary.

During the last four decades the paper has seen 11 editors take the helm, including Jimmy Ross, who as the longest-serving editor to date, held the post for 10 years from 1972.

The title has also seen to Alan Crow’s take charge. The first was Alan Crow, now news editor of the Scottish Mail on Sunday who edited the paper during the mid-80s, and the second was Allan Crow, now editor of the Fife Free Press.

Others have included Jack Sneddon, now editor of the Fife Leader, Graeme Scott, who now edits the East Fife Mail and the Gazette’s current editor Iain Muirhead.

The weekly paid-for is published every Wednesday and has a circulation of 6,500.

Iain, (35), who has been editor of the Gazette for the past year, said: “It’s a real privilege for me to be at the helm of a newspaper with such a proud history of service to the town of Glenrothes and its surrounding communities.”
