Editorial reshuffle at Scottish weeklies

A reshuffle at a Scottish newspaper group will see a weekly editor take on responsibility for a second title.

Romanes Media Group subsidiary Ayshire Weekly Press has announced the move after Douglas Skelton’s decision to leave the Cumnock Chronicle at the end of the year.

The changes will see Caroline Paterson, who is currently in charge of the Ardrossan Herald and the Ayr Advertiser Series, become managing editor of both the Advertiser and the Chronicle.

Roisin McGroarty, currently editor of the Irvine Times, will take on the Herald from Caroline as well as remaining in her present role.

David Carnduff, who was recently appointed as editor of the Largs & Millport Weekly News, will continue in this role.

As previously reported by HoldtheFrontPage staff at the Chronicle will be relocated to offices in Ardrossan, 30 miles away.

Douglas will concentrate his writing career after following his departure.

Other recent job moves in the regional press include:

    Good luck to Roisin. Hopefully she’ll lick the declining Ardrossan Herald into shape the same way she did Irvine.
