Cision is holding an exclusive briefing with The Scotsman, the 200-year-old national newspaper, at its offices in Edinburgh.

We will be joined by Frank O’Donnell, the daily newspaper’s editor-in-chief and editorial director.

Tuesday 12 September
09.30 (arrival) – 10.00 (start) – 11.00

The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday
Orchard Brae House – Coia Room
30 Queensferry Road

Launched in 1817 by William Ritchie and Charles Maclaren, the paper was originally intended as a response to its competitors’ perceived “subservience to the Edinburgh establishment”. It is now distributed throughout Scotland with a current print circulation of 22,740. Its online and mobile sites receive 10 million page views per month, on average.

Prior to joining The Scotsman, O’Donnell was director of digital content for Johnston Press – one of the UK’s three largest local newspaper publishers. Johnston Press acquired The Scotsman in 2005. O’Donnell is also editor-in-chief at Edinburgh Evening News and Scotland on Sunday.

Join us on Tuesday 12 September to discover more about The Scotsman, its plans for the future and how PR professionals can work effectively with the title.
