An award-winning journalist has been recruited to a regional publisher’s investigations unit.
Charles Thomson, formerly of the Yellow Advertiser, has joined Archant as an investigations reporter covering four titles in London and Hertfordshire – the Romford Recorder, Ham & High, Herts Advertiser and The Comet series.
The Advertiser was later revived as a digital-only operation by editor Mick Ferris.
Charles said: “It’s a real honour to join the Archant investigations unit. I’ve long been an admirer of their work.
“It’s been an unusual start – working remotely, amid a national lockdown, on some of the more hidden impacts of the coronavirus pandemic – but I am enjoying the challenge and I look forward to working on many more exciting investigations in the future.”
Investigations editor Tom Bristow said: “I’m over the moon to be working with two such brilliant journalists. I can’t wait to see what they produce and I’m very excited for the future.”
