The following memo went out to all staff this morning:
Subject: Leicester Mercury - Keith Perch
Earlier this year in February, following Nick Carter’s departure, Keith Perch agreed to serve as Acting Editor of the Leicester Mercury.
I am delighted to inform you that Keith has agreed to remain in this position on a permanent basis. Thus, with immediate effect, Keith is appointed Editor of the Leicester Mercury.
We wish Keith every success in his new role and in taking forward the Mercury during this challenging time for local newspapers.
