Symon to say goodbye

THE business editor of the Sunday Herald newspaper is leaving the paper.

Ken Symon – one of just two full-time journalists on the business desk at the paper – departs at the end of next month. It is believed he is considering various options.

At present, Symon heads a business supplement, along with fellow staffer, Steven Vass. Valerie Darroch is a contracted freelance with the section, while Lianne Gutcher is a regular freelancer.
