Former Sunday Telegraph editor Dominic Lawson is going from strength to strength in his career as a columnist.
Media Guardian reports that he is cutting down his writing commitments at the Independent and Independent on Sunday to write a weekly column in the Sunday Times – taking over from Simon Jenkins.
Jenkins is understood to be cutting down on his journalism work to focus on his new job as chairman of the National Trust.
Lawson was editor of the Sunday Telegraph for ten years – leaving abruptly in 2005 following the Barclay Brothers takeover of the title. He will continue to write one column a week for The Independent.
