Take Five RSS

Take Five is a regular feature in which we ask prominent regional press figures five set questions about their careers – where they started out, who or what inspired them to go into journalism, their best story or headline, the best journalist they have worked with or for, and which other newspapers they most admire.

We are always looking for volunteers so if you would like to take part, email us on
