Guernsey Press editor of 14 years Richard Digard to be replaced by deputy Shaun Green following retirement

Guernsey Press editor Richard Digard has retired after 14 years in the job.

Deputy editor Shaun Green is to succeed Digard as editor, and assistant editor Suzanne Heneghan will move up to be deputy.

Green, who was born in Guernsey, has worked on the Channel Island daily, which has a circulation of 13,939 according to ABC, for 25 years.

He joined as a junior reporter before moving to become a sub-editor, then head of production before being made deputy editor 13 years ago.

Guernsey Press managing director Mark Lewis said: “Shaun is the ideal person to succeed Richard Digard.

“He has a complete understanding of the ethos of The Guernsey Press, having worked alongside Richard for many years and I very much look forward to working more closely with him, going forward.”

Heneghan began her career at the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo Group before joining the Guernsey paper in 1999.

She worked in a senior production role, then as features editor and news editor before taking over as assistant editor for nine years.

Editor Green said: “We have worked well together for many years, and I know that Suzanne’s skills as an experienced and talented journalist will enable the Guernsey Press to meet the many challenges that no doubt lie ahead of us.”
