Pastures new for Evening Times trio

THIS week sees the departure of three stalwarts at the Evening Times, with one headed for China.

The Sun is the destination for deputy chief sub-editor, John Rathbone, while subbing and page planning is the expected role on the Inverness Courier for internet and news sub-editor, John Davidson.

And, most exotic of the three moves, is that of deputy production editor, Hugh McDiarmid, who is taking up a sub-editing job at the English-language newspaper, the Shanghai Daily.

It is believed that none applied for voluntary redundancy during the latest, recent invitation, from management, for applicants.
