Deadline appoints former Scotland on Sunday news editor as chief reporter

Scottish news agency Deadline has appointed former Scotland on Sunday news editor Peter Laing to the role of chief reporter.

Laing previously worked with Deadline’s founders Scott Douglas and Raymond Notarangelo when the trio were at the Scottish Daily Record.

He previously worked as a reporter and then crime reporter for the Edinburgh Evening News, and as home affairs correspondent for Scotland on Sunday before being appointed as news editor in 2001.

The agency has recently recruited three new journalism graduates from the MA Multimedia Journalism course at Caledonian University, Amanda MacMillan, Christine Lavelle and Clare Carswell.
