Royal Central appoints new Deputy and Assistant Editors

Royal Central is pleased to announce the appointment of Jamie Samhan as the site’s new Deputy Editor, effective from Tuesday 1st November.

Jamie, who was previously Assistant Editor, replaces James Brookes, who departs from the Editorial Team after spending a year as Deputy Editor. James will still be an integral part of the team though in a newly created post of Technical Director (Design) where he will be responsible for ensuring your reader experience is as good as it possibly can be.

Replacing Jamie as Assistant Editor will be Moniek Bloks, who was Royal Central’s Chief Reporter since the beginning of 2016.

Taking up the role of Chief Reporter will be Laura McCallen, who has been a Senior Reporter with Royal Central since April. Laura’s role will be to lead news coverage on the site with our team of reporters.

Royal Central’s Desk Editor, Nikita, has also left the Editorial Team. We are thrilled to say however that she will continue to write for us as a Senior Reporter.
