Sunday Herald business editor Kenny Kemp is leaving to edit monthly

magazine Scottish Business Insider. Kemp is due to start his new job in

mid-summer. He has been business editor at the Sunday Herald since its

launch in February last year, and oversaw the launch of a separate

business section just over a month ago.



Prior to the Sunday Herald Kemp worked at the Scotsman for ten years, on

the foreign and features desks and latterly as business features

editor.



Before joining the Scotsman he was features editor on Today and helped

launch the Evening News in London in 1987.



Kemp will take over from the current editor of Scottish Business

Insider, Bill Millar, who will stay to help with the handover. Millar is

leaving to pursue other interests.



The magazine, which has a circulation of 20,000, is published by the

Insider group. Insider was bought by Trinity Mirror, owner of the Daily

Record and Sunday Mail, earlier this year. Kemp said: ’Trinity Mirror

has said it wanted to take the magazine in a different direction. There

is still a crying need for a good business publication in Scotland that

looks at the wider world.’



P Harry Reid, editor of Scottish broadsheet the Herald, is to retire

after 18 years with the paper. He will remain in the post until the end

of December 2000, to ensure a smooth handover with his successor, who

has yet to be appointed.
