Times they are a changing
Good morning, it's Micheal with you here one more. This last month or so has been a strange period – we've been an editorial staff member down ever since Conor took himself off to the BBC in April.
However, our quest to replace the irreplaceable is almost over because we've got ourselves a brand new Conor – Tandragee's own Scott Mann, coming to us straight out of completing a Masters in Journalism at the University of Ulster. We haven't been able to put him in situ yet as he hasn't competed the course but we're confident got a good one on our hands. No doubt he'll put his own stamp on the role. He's been doing a few Fridays with us over the last number of weeks. Check out his first piece out and about from a Roma Traveller event in Armagh on Friday below.
But I also must thank the rest of the team: Rikki, Kellie and in particular Mairead, who has been a fantastic help during that time – and indeed since she first came on board. Her experience and talent have really shone through, her editorial nouse has been invaluable to me and the wider team. It'll also come in handy when I go on holiday next week...:)
