In Hertfordshire, Matt Adams is now group editor having previously been editor the Herts Advertiser.

His old role goes to Nina who is additionally editor of the Welwyn Hatfield Times, succeeding Terry Mitchinson who left the company after 41 years in November.

Matt’s overall remit also covers Stevenage-based weekly The Comet and the Royston Crow, whose new editor Nick Gill was unveiled on HTFP last month.

Nick replaced John Francis who retired last summer.

    good to see more editors being appointed,however it doesnt mention their backgrounds in the piece?
    Are they from the ranks or were they editors in previous roles?

    Sorry to keep bladdering on about the demise of local newspaper photographers but only one of those head and shoulders (Nick Gill) looks as if it was taken by a pro’ snapper. The others look like Facebook grabs or worse. A quality head and shoulders photograph should be a must for any editor.
    BTW Good luck in your new roles.
