New editor to oversee weekly's compact plans

Newsquest weekly the Wilts & Gloucestershire Standard is to change from broadsheet to a compact format, under the new editorship of Skip Walker.

Skip is returning to the Cirencester-based title after an absence of ten years, and one of her first tasks will be to oversee its transformation.

She said: “I have always had a passion for the Standard and the stunning area of the Cotswolds it covers and I am thrilled to be back.

“I am particularly excited about the prospect of overseeing its transformation later this year from a broadsheet to a compact, a move I am certain that readers and advertisers will appreciate.”

Skip had previously been editor of the Gloucestershire Gazette series and is also a former editor of the Stroud News & Journal, both of which are also published by Newsquest.
