Axed deputy editor joins rival publisher in new reporting role

Ginny SandersonA deputy editor who was made redundant at a regional daily has joined a rival publisher in a new role.

Ginny Sanderson has announced her appointment at Glasgow-based daily The Herald, where she will be working as a reporter.

Ginny, pictured, was made redundant as second in command at the Edinburgh Evening News in July, just 10 months after taking the job.

Her departure was part of wider cutbacks by EEN publisher National World affecting more than 50 journalists.

Ginny told HTFP: “I’m really excited to join the fantastic team at The Herald and take on a new challenge.

“In this role, I’ll be working to highlight the important issues affecting people across Scotland and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Ginny trained at Brighton Journalist Works in 2016 and then spent four years based in Eastbourne.

There, she worked on Sussex titles owned by National World forerunner Johnston Press before moving to Scotland in 2020.

She had been the Evening News’s deputy editor since September 2022 and previously served as engagement executive at its Edinburgh-based sister daily The Scotsman, a role she held for almost two years.
