Sports Appointment Expected Soon

The Herald newspaper is expected to announce – either at the end of this week or the beginning of next – the identity of the successor to sports writer, Mark Wilson, who is off soon to the Scottish Daily Mail.

Wilson is heading to the Mail to replace Roger Hannah, who is off to the Scottish Sun. And Spike understands that there’s a shortlist of six for The Herald post – with candidates from both north and south of the border.
