Media release: New news editor of The Times Scotland


DAVID McCann, the current assistant editor and head of news at The Herald, is joining The Times Scotland next month as news editor and deputy to the editor, Magnus Llewellin.

McCann replaces Jeremy Watson, who is going back to writing but will still also be working for The Times Scotland on an occasional basis.

Belfast-born McCann (36) lives in Edinburgh with his wife and young daughter and has a strong pedigree in Scottish print and digital news, having previously worked in senior positions at the Daily Record and, prior to that, the Edinburgh Evening News.

Magnus Llewellin said: “We are delighted to have David on board. I had the pleasure of working with him at The Herald and, like everyone who has had any dealings with him, was hugely impressed. I am sure he will go on to do great things as we continue to develop and grow The Times in Scotland.”

David McCann said: “I am thrilled to be joining The Times in Scotland. It is superb – both in print and online – and I look forward to working with a great team.”
