IT’S only circumstantial evidence that had allmediascotland.com yesterday speculating that today could be the day when the identity of the new editor of The Herald newspaper is announced.
Whoever it is – from a short list that is believed to have comprised two internal candidates and five external – there will be the additional responsibility of being editor-in-chief of sister titles, the Evening Times and the Sunday Herald.
Yesterday, allmediascotland.com went so far to say the ‘smart money’ is on current Evening Times editor, Donald Martin.
Well, for one thing, he was, unusually, wearing a suit on Monday. Might it have been for a second interview? And it is understood he’s going to be out of the office after today, until Tuesday.
So, what better day than today… ?
