Sad day as Evening Standard dies

Sad day as Evening Standard dies

The London Evening Standard is to stop printing five days a week and will aim to appear, possibly, just once a week.

When I arrived at the Standard as Assistant Editor in 2002, we put out five editions a day with three or four arts pages. Paid circulation was around 400,000 and a page of advertising cost £17,000. We were profitable, happy, news breaking and agenda setting.

Sic transit gloria mundi.
