Guy Hanson and Sue Hughes are posting Winchester Resident Magazine to about 7,500 homes in the area with bi-monthly editions in B5 ‘book’ format.
The magazine is the brainchild of Hanson, who has worked in sales for regional publishers including Newsquest, Archant, Trinity Mirror and Baylisss Media over a 35-year career. The pair met when Hanson was National Sales Director of Archant Lifestyle and Hughes was chief writer at Hampshire Life, one of the titles under his remit.
Said Hanson: “Sue’s brief is to go back to the roots of quality, local journalism and write about issues, people, independent businesses and organisations in and around Winchester.
“I believe that micro publishing is the future for our industry now. Winchester Resident Magazine will reflect that.”
