A double signing for Sunday Herald - Press Gazette

A double signing for Sunday Herald

The Sunday Herald has boosted its editorial staff with two new recruits.

Duncan Hughes, New York-based correspondent of The Business, is to join as senior business writer. Editor Andrew Jaspan has also recruited Arthur MacMillan as the newspaper’s media and business correspondent.

MacMillan, who has been working for the Aberdeen-based Press & Journal, has freelanced for the Sunday Herald, The Sunday Times and The Observer.

He replaces Darran Gardner, who left the Sunday Herald after four years to do an MBA at Strathclyde University.

Other changes have come on the Seven Days section, where editor Charlene Sweeney, who has been editor for nearly three years, is getting married and taking a six-month sabbatical to tour the world.

Her deputy, Barry Didcock, becomes acting editor, and Susan Flockhart becomes acting deputy of the section.

Jaspan said of Sweeney: “My view is that when you have very good staff one has to be flexible and let them do different things.”
