Congratulations to award winning journalist John Hutcheson who has graduated into the role of Online Editor for the S&UN group and saw his first project go live this week.
And it really is night and day from its previous incarnation.
And it is a timely move.
And word is there will be a heavy emphasis on community news – with either local pages or portals expected to be in the mix somewhere as it looks to re-engage its readers on every street corner.
But it will surely be the battle for advertisers as much as readers online that will be key to deciding whoever ultimately comes out on top.
NB: As John quite rightly points out, while he will steer the good ship, the engine room is more Rolls Royce than Ford Focus thanks only to the talented team of web designers and IT specialists who give him the tools to make the content sing and dance…..
