Hugo Dixon by Ray Snoddy

Fakery, distortion and misrepresentation found a new name in 2016 - ‘fake news’.

Ray Snoddy meets one man who swam against the tide – Hugo Dixon.

Lawson Muncaster - interview by Ray Snoddy

City A.M. has become a regular sight on the streets of London over the past decade. Despite a recession, continued digital disruption and now Brexit, it’s still standing, but not yet profitable. As Lawson Muncaster tells Ray Snoddy, a profitable 2017 is the top priority.

Sarah Sands - interview by Ray Snoddy

In 2009, the Evening Standard’s ABC stood at 256k – it’s now over 900k. Removing the cover price was obviously the clincher, but there’s no denying the new-found spring in the Standard’s step. As editor Sarah Sands tells Ray Snoddy, no one has to pick up the paper, so she and her team work very hard to give them reasons to do so.

Last year, Archant appointed as its new chief executive Jeff Henry, a man who had never worked in newspapers before; someone whose whole media career had been spent in television and film.
