City daily to regain dedicated editor for first time in four years

Euan 1A city daily has regained its own dedicated editor for the first time in four years after a managerial restructure.

Edinburgh Evening News deputy editor Euan McGrory, left, has been promoted to the top job at the newspaper after eight years as its second in command – and 18 years in total with the newspaper.

A 2014 restructure involving the EEN, The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday saw the three titles come under a single editorial director in Ian Stewart, with Frank O’Donnell serving as their managing editor.

Frank took on the editorial director role after Ian’s departure from Johnston Press last year, and retains the position of editor-in-chief at the three titles following Euan’s appointment.

Euan joined the EEN in 2000, having worked for the Northern Echo in various roles, including deputy news editor and chief regional reporter, in the four years prior to that.

In Edinburgh he served as both assistant news editor and news editor, before becoming deputy editor in 2010.

Euan, pictured, began his new role on 1 November.  EEN owner JPIMedia has so far declined to comment further on the appointment.
