Kemp quits Herald for freelance life

Kenny Kemp, business editor and co-founder of the Sunday Herald, has resigned to work as a freelance and write books.

He took a sabbatical earlier this year to help Barbara Cassani, the US founder of Go airline, write her biography. He met Cassani in 1998 when she launched her airline into Scotland and when it was sold to EasyJet last year for £374m, she approached several journalists before asking Kemp to help write the book.

Kemp trained on the Evening Express in Aberdeen, before moving to London. He returned to Scotland where he spent nearly nine years at The Scotsman, during which time he moved into business writing.

He was recently named Scotland’s Business Writer of the Year in the Scottish Press Awards.

Go Fly is being published by Time Warner Books in November.
