Greenock Telegraph Wins At Newsquest Awards

Two senior editorial staff at the Greenock Telegraph won at Newsquest's annual Excellence Awards.


Editor Brian Hossack and photographer George Munroe both won awards at Newsquest's UK Excellence Awards.

Hossack won Editor of the Year 2015, while Munro won the Unsung Hero award.

Henry Faure Walker, Newsquest chief executive, spoke to staff about "the absolute importance of good newspaper sales figures- something that last year was ably demonstrated by the Greenock Telegraph and editor Brian Hossack, who illustrated that you can achieve great digital audience growth and strong copy sales.”

Hossack joined the newspaper in 2013, while Munro has been with the title for over 20 years.

Faure Walker also said: "The amazing and hard-hitting local journalism that our news teams produce day in day out is epitomised by photography from the likes of George Munrowho defines ‘going the extra mile’ for his title."

On his win, Hossack said: "I was surprised, but absolutely delighted to win this UK award. Newsquest has around 50 editors successfully covering the whole of Britain, so to be chosen among this company is quite humbling.

"The award however is very much testament to the people who work at the Greenock Telegraph. The paper has a dedicated, talented and committed staff who are a pleasure to manage and work with. Any manager is only as good as his players, and I take real pride in the strong team ethic we have built here in Greenock. This award recognises not just my contribution, but that of everyone in that team.

"We also have a very loyal readership, and I would like to thank them for their continued support."

Munro said: "I've worked at the Telegraph for many years, and I'm proud to say we have a great paper that still provides a voice for the people of Inverclyde and the area."
