A weekly newspaper editor has moved into council PR after a year in the role.
Amanda Graham was appointed editor of the Lennox Herald after 15 years at the title as part of a wider reshuffle by newspaper publisher Trinity Mirror in March 2013.
However Amanda has now taken up a role as a press officer at West Dunbartonshire Council with Martin Laing due to take over in the editor’ chair.
Martin moves to the Herald from the Johnston Press-owned Galloway Gazette and Carrick Gazette newspapers where he is currently editor.
Before taking up his current role, Martin was a senior production journalist at The Herald, Glasgow for a number of years.
He has also previously worked for the Stirling Observer, The Standard in Hong Kong and the Edinburgh Evening News.
