Shipping industry news title Lloyd’s List is increasing its editorial staff and staging a return to print some two years after it went digital-only.
The former daily newspaper for the shipping industry went digital-only in 2013 after 279 years in print. But it is now to launch a new magazine which will be published ten times a year.
According to publisher Informa, Lloyd’s List is to expand its editorial teams in London, New York and Singapore, increasing the number of journalists it employs by 40 per cent (it declined to reveal total editorial headcount).
The title employed 20 editorial staff when it went digital-only in 2013.
Informa said the London office is to be “re-structured”, with “specialist teams split across global and regional news stories to ensure that all key markets and time zones are covered”.
New reporters are to be taken on in New York to cover Wall Street and US shipping, “supplying essential, timely insight to keep subscribers tuned-in to this important market and financial centre”.
And new analysts and reporters are to be recruited in Singapore, “including specialist reporters dedicated to tanker, dry bulk and container beats to ensure unrivalled insight into the opportunities and threats developing in these core markets”.Fatal error: Call to undefined function related_posts() in /srv/bindings/5bee431a2e3541078d206f140068a1be/code/wp-content/themes/overcast/template-parts/content-single.php on line 284
