Four journalists made redundant at ents website

Four staff on Trinity Mirror’s entertainment and listings website have been made redundant.

The website will continue to function though while its companion magazine is switching from monthly to quarterly publication.

Content is most likely to be provided by writers on the company’s two regional dailies the Liverpool Echo and Liverpool Daily Post.

The Yorkshire Post’s deputy business editor Greg Wright has been crowned regional media human resources journalist of the year.

Greg’s entry included a story on the problems with integration facing Asian businesses in Yorkshire and a critique of political correctness in the workplace.

Runner-up in the category was Paul Hill of Norwich daily the Eastern Daily Press. The awards are run by Watson Wyatt which advises companies on personnel issues.

Jane Daly, group editor of Trinity Mirror’s Merseyside Weeklies series, produced her last paper this week after 40 years in local journalism.

Jane has taken early retirement as part of the editorial shake-up announced by Trinity Mirror North West before Christmas.

She is joined by her photographer husband John who also took early retirement last month.

The pair met in 1968 on Jane’s first day at the Southport Visiter and have been based their together for the majority of the time since.

Sean Mahon, Northcliffe Media’s group director of marketing, has left the company.

He has taken up a new post as chief operating officer with the Southern Star Group, Ireland.

Northcliffe MD Michael Pelosi said: “Sean has made a very valuable contribution to the progress Northcliffe has made in digital and brand marketing since joining AND from Fish4 two-and-a-half years ago. We wish him every success.”

Skegness Standard editor Rebekah Gunn has raised over £500 for charity by completing the Lincoln 10K run.

Rebekah finished in 1hr and 11mins and was running for leukaemia charity the Anthony Nolan Trust.
