Reporter steps up to news editor at Midlands weeklies

Beth SA reporter at a weekly newspaper in the West Midlands is to take on the role of news editor at two sister titles.

Beth Sharp, left, is joining Bullivant Media’s Solihull and Coventry Observers after two years at the Bromsgrove and Droitwich Standard.

The 23-year-old said: “I’ve had a great two years and met some wonderful people during my time here.

“I will definitely miss Bromsgrove and Droitwich and the people – I have loved covering the two towns’ news. But I feel it is time for a new challenge and I am looking forward to taking up my new roles.”

Bromsgrove and Droitwich Standard editor Tristan Harris added: “There will be many people, both in the newsroom and outside of it, who will miss Beth – she’s done such a lot since coming here and has thrown herself into everything.

“Myself and the team wish her well in her new post which we know she will be great in.”

    “Myself and the team wish her well”?? And this man is allegedly a journalist good enough to be an editor?

    Why ‘allegedly’? Why two question marks? Glass houses, perhaps.
