New Statesman lines up interviewees for editor's job

The New Statesman is interviewing candidates for the editor’s job this week, according to Media Guardian.

Possible candidates to replace John Kampfner, who left the job in February, include acting editor Sue Matthias, political editor Martin Bright and a number of external applicants including Neal Lawson, chairman of the pressure group Compass, and Mark Seddon, former editor of the Tribune. An unnamed Guardian journalist is also thought to have applied.

The report says that The Independent’s political columnist Steve Richards and the Daily Mirror’s Kevin McGuire have both declined to be considered.
