Three names said to be on all-woman shortlist for Prospect editorship

The race to succeed David Goodhart as editor of up-market current affairs magazine Prospect has resulted in a shortlist of three candidates – all women, according to the Independent on Sunday.

The Feral Beast column reports that the candidates are: Susannah Herbert, former editor of News Review in The Sunday Times; Bronwen Maddox, currently chief foreign commentator at The Times and Anne McElvoy, political columnist at the Evening Standard.

Prospect might seem like a safer harbour for a national newspaper journalist, with its steadily growing circulation. But then again, 15 years after launch it has yet to turn a profit.
