Sun chief reporter John Kay proves that some journalists ARE indispensable


Working in a newsroom nowadays feels a bit like being in an episode of The Sopranos – you never know who is going to get “whacked” next. It sometimes seems that, to the newspaper beancounters, no-one is indispensable.
So Axegrinder was gratified to learn that one man apparently is.
Chief reporter of The Sun John Kay is fast approaching retirement age – but Press Gazette understands he has been persuaded to stay on for at least another couple of years as a full-time freelance on the same pay.
Kay is regarded by many to be the best reporter on Fleet Street and has twice been named reporter of the year in the British Press Awards over the last decade.
He is also one of the 40 greatest national press journalists of the last 40 years to make it into the Press Gazette National Newspapers Hall of Fame.
