Pasture’s new for Mail on Sunday’s Macaskill

THE bureau chief at the Scottish Mail on Sunday has been appointed assistant editor at the Hull Daily Mail.

Jamie Macaskill succeeds Paul Hartley who has been promoted to deputy editor, following the appointment of previous incumbent, David Bourn, as editorial director of Inverness-based newspaper publishers, Scottish Provincial Press.

Jamie has held his current position for six years, having previously worked for the Trinity Mirror-owned Sunday Mail and Daily Record.

He began his career at the Evening Express in Aberdeen, before joining The Journal in Newcastle.

At the Scottish Mail on Sunday, Jamie’s role will be taken over by Andrew Beaven, currently the deputy news editor at sister title, the Scottish Daily Mail. He has been with the Daily Mail in Glasgow since 1998.

Said Jamie: “It has been a privilege to work with the Mail on Sunday, a newspaper without rival in its market. I would particularly like to thank my colleagues in Glasgow who are without doubt among the best journalists in the country. I am also very grateful to those freelance journalists who have helped contribute to the paper’s continued success.

“The Scottish Mail on Sunday is in great shape and I am sure it will continue to show its strength in Scotland. I am now looking forward to a new challenge with Hull News & Media, an exciting and forward looking company with a strong reputation for hard news, great sport and terrific innovation.”
