Pastures new for Virtue

THE deputy editor of the new-look Sunday Herald magazine is heading off for pastures new.

But it’s understood that Graham Virtue’s decision to pursue other writing projects was taken long before the launch of the new look, less than a month ago.

He was previously deputy editor of Seven Days, the TV and arts supplement that has now been ‘folded into’ the magazine. He was also arts editor of Seven Days.

Virtue joined the Sunday Herald within months of its launch in 1999.
