Evening News drops business page

EDINBURGH newspaper, the Edinburgh Evening News, has dropped its dedicated business page and is instead to weave business news and features into the whole of the newspaper.

Until last Friday, the paper operated a single page devoted to business – having, four years ago, run eight, with three journalists.

But with the recent internal move of Michael Blackley, from business editor to (Edinburgh City) council reporter, the paper now no longer has anyone allocated specifically to business coverage.
