So today we start our search for a new editor to take up the reins and lead Farmers Weekly into the next chapter of its history.
“The best job in publishing”
“Editing Farmers Weekly is quite simply the best job in publishing,” said Karl.
“No industry is more important, more rewarding or more fascinating to write about. And no readers are more passionate, demanding or appreciative than the UK farming community.”
This is not a job for the fainthearted, he added. Farmers Weekly needs – and British farmers deserve – an editor who will work hard to give farmers the information, insight and analysis they need to help them make the best decisions.
“We need someone who can lead the biggest and best team of journalists in UK agriculture, and someone who is prepared to champion British farming and the best interests of farmers, even if that means risking unpopularity at times,” added Karl.
