Showbiz beckons for John

The glitzy world of showbiz awaits John Marr after four years as editor of the Peterborough Herald and Post.

He is leaving the paper for a new job as senior producer for the new web site icShowbiz, run by Trinity Mirror.

For John, it’s a dream appointment because of his strong interest in music and films.

He told HoldtheFrontPage: “It’s a position that’s only just been created so I’m not entirely sure what the job will entail. But a large part will be interviewing some of the main figures in showbiz. I can’t wait to get started.”

During his journalistic career, he has already talked to some of the biggest names, including Alicia Silverstone and Guy Ritchie – the new Mr Madonna.

He said: “The new job will be what I’ve always enjoyed doing – but on a much larger scale.”

John started his journalistic career as a reporter for the Daventry Express in 1989.
