University honours for two Archant editors in Suffolk

By Myriam Dijck

The editors of two daily newspapers at Archant’s Suffolk newspapers will be made honorary fellows at University Campus Suffolk.

East Anglian Daily Times editor Terry Hunt and Evening Star editor Nigel Pickover have been in their roles since 1996.

Pickover, who has lived in Suffolk since 1993, has overseen numerous campaigns at the Star – including the campaign to establish the University Campus Suffolk, which opened in 2007.

He also scooped the best daily newspaper award at the Regional Press Awards in 2007 and 2008.

Pickover, originally from Sheffield, started in journalism aged 17 and previously worked for the Daily Mail and the Daily Express in Manchester.

‘This honour from the fantastic new university in my adopted county is wonderful recognition for what we have achieved at the Star over the last 15 years,’said Pickover.
