Digital subscribers to quiz editor of ‘evolving’ weekly

Gillian MurphyAn editor is set to answer digital subscribers’ questions in a bid to make her newspaper’s journalism a “two-way conversation”.

Readers who subscribe to the website of the Largs & Millport Weekly News have been urged to submit their questions to editor Gillian Murphy.

The questions and Gillian’s answers will then be compiled into an article later this month.

Questions can be submitted on any subject – whether it’s “about a local issue, our news coverage, how we make decisions or what makes the newsroom tick”.

Gillian, pictured, wrote in an editorial about the project: “Our title is evolving and that’s great news for subscribers like you.

“Being the editor used to just mean deciding what we would tell readers in print, but now journalism can and should be a two-way conversation.

“We want you to be involved before, during and after everything we do.

“The editor’s job is also now a truly multimedia role and we can communicate with you across all our channels: print, website, social and video.

“All this allows you to get even closer to the stories and means we can update you more frequently.

“So now all you need to do is decide what you want to ask: it can be anything you like, whether it is about the stories we cover, our role in our community or ways we can serve you better.”
