The Guardian has recruited an editor for its listings magazine, the

Guide.



Tim Lusher, a features writer on the Evening Standard and former editor

of the paper’s daily Hot Tickets page, has been appointed to the

role.



He joins at the end of April, replacing Ben Olins, who left in December

to oversee a multi-media launch for James Brown’s publishing venture,

IFG.



Lusher edited the Standard’s Hot Tickets page, now called Going Out, and

worked on its Londoner’s Diary until January 1999, when he became a

features writer. He joined the paper in 1996 from the Western Morning

News.



Lusher said of the Guide: ’There is no mandate for throwing out the

template and starting again. I will be looking at building on its

strengths, in design and content, and I want to expand certain editorial

areas.’



Meanwhile Gaby Hinsliff, 28, the Daily Mail’s chief political

correspondent since 1998, is to replace Andy McSmith as the Observer’s

chief political correspondent. She joins political editor Kamal Ahmed.

Hinsliff moved to become a political and news reporter at the Mail in

1996, from the Grimsby Evening Telegraph, where she worked for two

years.



McSmith is leaving to join the Daily Telegraph, also as chief political

correspondent (PR Week, 3 March).
