Media Wales editors Tim Gordon and Simon Farrington to leave Trinity Mirror

By William Turvill

The South Wales Echo and Wales on Sunday editors are to leave Trinity Mirror this summer.

The departures were announced to staff in Cardiff this morning in an email from Media Wales editor-in-chief Alan Edmunds.

He said that both SWE editor Tim Gordon and WoS editor Simon Farrington were moving on to pursue different business interests and will be leaving in July.

Edmunds said in the internal email:

I am announcing this morning that South Wales Echo Editor Tim Gordon and Wales on Sunday Editor Simon Farrington are to leave Media Wales to pursue new separate business ventures.

“I would like to offer my wholehearted thanks to Tim and Simon for their tremendous hard work, skill and commitment to Media Wales over many years.

“I would also like to thank them both for their outstanding personal support over the past decade as we have successfully taken the newsroom forward to meet the changing demands of our audience.
