The editor of the Sunday Post newspaper – who, as reported by allmediascotland, was made editor-in-chief of sister title, The Weekly News, earlier this month – has had his responsibilities extended to include the other two newspaper titles in publisher, DC Thomson's stable.
In a memo to staff, the company's David Thomson announced that Donald Martin is to be editor-in-chief also of the morning title, The Courier, and evening title, the Evening Telegraph.
Martin joined the Sunday Post at the start of the year from The Herald & Times Group, in Glasgow, where he also held the role of editor-in-chief.
The Courier is edited by Bill Hutcheon, while the Evening Telegraph is edited by Richard Prest, and the memo says: “The editors of The Courier and Evening Telegraph will now report to Donald, who will also retain his responsibilities as editor of The Sunday Post and The Weekly News. Bill and Richard will retain responsibility for editing their newspapers while working with Donald to ensure each title benefits from a more cohesive and collective approach.”
Martin is expected to speak to DC Thomson's Dundee-based staff at 3pm today, to be followed by a presentation in Glasgow tomorrow and another, in Manchester, on Friday.
