Will Hutton, the new editor of the Observer, is continuing his shakeup

of senior posts on the paper with the appointment of Jocelyn Targett as

deputy editor for features.



Targett has been editor of the Mail on Sunday’s Night and Day magazine

since its launch in August 1993. The magazine has helped the MoS

increase sales by over 250,000.



Prior to joining the MoS, Targett worked for the Guardian, joining in

1988 as a features writer, moving up to deputy editor of the Weekend

Guardian and then arts editor.



Meanwhile a number of journalists have left the paper in the wake of

editor Andrew Jaspan and his deputy John Price, who both left a week

ago. These include associate editor Sarah Baxter, promoted by Jaspan

late last year, and assistant editors Nigel Billen, Andrew Hogg, Adrian

Hamilton and Mark Frankland.
