Scotsman Shock Exit

Leave a comment

Ian Stewart Editor in Chief at The Scotsman Publications has announced he is leaving the post just three weeks before the paper is due to celebrate its bicentenary. Members have told the NUJ that the announcement left staff “utterly speechless” given the timing of the exit.

Ian has guided The Scotsman titles through extremely turbulent times, but always working with the union to limit damage, despite the savage cuts of recent years.

That he has done so while managing to retain the confidence and admiration of his staff is testament to his management abilities and fair mindedness as well as his professional approach, unflappable under pressure. He will be remembered for his staunch defence of the journalism and all products he managed.
