JOAN McAlpine – the Herald deputy editor until six months ago – is returning to her old stomping ground, at Sunday Times Scotland.
On Monday, she begins as assistant editor (features), her main responsibility being to edit the paper’s Ecosse section. She joined The Herald from Sunday Times Scotland, where she had been editor.
Says McApline: “I spent five years with the Sunday Times as a writer and editor and loved it there. It’s a fun place to work – with a talented, enthusiastic team.”
