Hereford Times Gets New Editor


The Hereford Times is getting a new editor, with current chief Fiona Phillips leaving for a post in Newport.

Phillips, who spent just over four years in the role, is being replaced by news veteran Clive Joyce. He spent 21 years at the helm of the Kidderminster Shuttle before 'retiring' last month as the local office was shut and production moved to Stourbridge.

He returns to the grounding of his career at the Hereford Times where he began working in news in 1969, spending ten years at the paper including reporting on Bulls games:

“It seems incredible now, given the clubs’ respective places in football’s pecking order, but I covered United when they played Chelsea in league games in 1976-77! That season we were also playing Southampton, Hull, Wolves, Fulham, Nottingham Forest, and Blackburn. How fortunes change in football?”
