NWN Media boss David Faulkner stepping down after Newsquest takeover and 40 years in local newspapers

asd2

The managing director of a local news publisher in North Wales is to step down a month after his company was taken over by rival Newsquest.

NWN Media’s managing director David Faulkner will leave his role later this month. Faulkner has spent 40-years in regional news publishing, including the last eight years leading NWN Media.

The group publishes a number of newspaper titles across North Wales including the daily Leader (covering Wrexham and Flintshire) and North Wales Chronicle.

Newsquest bought the family-owned group, which dates back to the 1830s, in September.

Faulkner is said to be continuing to work as a freelance for Newsquest to help further develop its contract printing business, according to a message to staff from Newsquest chief executive Henry Faure Walker.

Nick Fellows, managing director of Newsquest North West will take over management of NWN Media from 30 October.

  1. What do these trainees expect, 9am-5pm with a lunch hour and weekends off?
    I remember working 12 days in a row without a day off, many early shifts and late shifts all mixed up so it was tough, 7 hours between some shifts. Did these people not look at the website before applying, what did they expect? cutting edge journalism! Poor snowflakes
