Wyvex Media group, publishers of the Oban Times and Scottish Field magazine has appointed Susan Windram as Editor of the Oban Times. Susan replaces Willie Mack who left in October.

Susan has a wealth of experience in weekly newspapers having spent almost 10 years as Group Editor of 11 titles in the Scottish Borders, owned by Tweeddale Press, part of Johnston Press. Under Susan’s stewardship, Tweeddale’s flagship title The Southern Reporter was named Scottish Weekly Newspaper of the Year for three consecutive years. Prior to her time at Tweeddale Press, Susan spent 14 years at The Scotsman.

Alister Bennett, MD of Wyvex Media Group said: ‘We are delighted to confirm Susan as our new editor in Oban. She fought off stiff competition for the post and we believe her passion for community news and experience in running newspapers in more rural areas will lead The Oban Times to even greater height.’

Susan commented: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for me to return to my first love – local weekly newspapers. The Oban Times is a fine example of a quality local, family-owned newspaper. It is a real honour to be entrusted with its future development and I will continue to uphold the values that have made it such a success.’
