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
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.
