Share This

The longest serving editor of a Scottish newspaper has announced he is to retire in January after 18 years running The Press & Journal, during which the paper celebrated its 250th anniversary, but also endured one of the most difficult periods in the history of newspapers.

Notwithstanding the downturn in circulation of newspapers, the P & J has maintained a presence in Aberdeen. It is the third-highest selling regional daily newspaper.

Tucker is reported by AllmediaScotland as saying that he is most proud of the fund-raising for the community in which the paper played an instrumental role.
