Media movers: Shaun Milne, Andrew Picken, etc

WELCOME to Media Movers, tracking some of the moves – including retirements and promotions – in the Scottish media scene…

FIRST up, and congratulations to Shaun Milne, appointed as news editor at The Herald.

He was previously editor of STV’s digital stable of websites, news editor – then assistant editor – at the Daily Mirror in Scotland, associate news editor with the Daily Record, online news editor for The Scottish Sun and, most recently, acting news editor across the newsdesk for The Scotsman titles.

He was previously managing editor for news agency, Deadline, co-owner of digital publishing company Planet Ink, and PR and digital director at Lucid PR, now System2, in Inverness.

AND, finally, best wishes to Kathryn Wylie, account manager at PR and strategic communications agency, Hollicom, since its launch last year.
