Sunday newspaper announces raft of new appointments

A flagship Sunday newspaper has named two new assistant editors among a raft of new appointments.

The DC Thomson-owned Sunday Post in Dundee has named Iain Harrison as assistant editor (news & sport) and Andy Clark as assistant editor (production & digital.)

Succeeding Iain as news editor is Craig Jackson, who joins the paper from the same role at the Edinburgh Evening News, while Jeremy Bayston becomes picture desk editor.

Other appointments at the title include Chris Donnan to the role of graphic artist and Euan McLelland as reporter.

Iain has worked for The Sunday Post as both chief reporter and then news editor having joined from the Sunday Times.

In his new role he will be responsible for leading and developing news and sport coverage for Post’s print and multi-media platforms.

Andy joins the Post from The Herald where he worked as group production editor.

He has previously worked for The Courier and Scotland on Sunday and as chief sub-editor for both the Evening Express and the Evening Times.

Sunday Post editor-in-chief Donald Martin said, “These are all tremendous appointments and bring a wealth of talent and experience to Scotland’s Newspaper of the Year.

“We look forward to producing even more award winning journalism across news, sport and features.”

    How has the word ‘raft’ crept into the media lexicon?

    Hardly a day goes by without the Government piling new proposals on a makeshift vessel constructed of palm trees and oil drums, or councils inflating a rubber dinghy to announce tough measures on something or other.

    If you removed ‘raft’ from this headline and intro it would make not a jot (now there is a lovely word) of difference to the sense, structure or flow of the headline or the sentence.

    In fact it saves two words in one and three in the other.
    Think of all that printing ink saved as well homes for squirrels.

    And ‘raft’ always makes me think of sinking ships and survivors clinging to the wreckage – which is a picture most of us would rather avoid these days.
