Weekly editor to take on deputy's role at daily

A weekly editor in the East of England is to join a rival group as deputy editor of a daily title.

Andy Veale, editor of the Archant-owned Hunts Post since 2006, is to be the new deputy editor of Local World’s Cambridge News.

Meanwhile a Local World editor is moving in the opposite direction to take over from Andy.

Stefan Bartlett, editor of the Luton on Sunday for the past two years, is leaving on 28 November to become the Hunts Post’s new editor.

The moves were triggered by the departure of Paul Kirkley from the deputy editorship of the Cambridge News in September after ten years on the paper.

In addition to his role as deputy editor on the News, Andy will also be digital publisher for LW’s Cambridge division.

Andy began his career in 1996 as a reporter on the Stratford-upon-Avon Herald and has also worked as deputy news editor of the Bath Chronicle and assistant editor of the Sutton Guardian.

He took over as Hunts Post editor in March 2006 and added the Saffron Walden Reporter and Dunmowm Broadcast titles to his portfolio in 2011.

Local World will be announcing Stefan’s replacement in the next few weeks.

    Congratulations to Andy, who was my first editor as a trainee reporter at The Hunts Post back in 2006. I learned a lot from your sharp news sense along with your straightforward and honest management style.

    I am sure you will be greatly missed by the team in Huntingdon and the wider Archant Herts & Cambs titles – best of luck in the new role.

    PS. Also good luck to Stefan at the HP!
