THE Evening News’ Gina Davidson, the current Scottish Journalist of the Year, is among the speakers at the first-ever Scottish Newspaper Society (SNS) conference this month.

Lord Black of Brentwood, the architect of the new system of press regulation, will kick off the First ScotRail-sponsored event at Glasgow’s Radisson Blu Hotel on April 24, ahead of the Scottish Press Awards that night.

His speech is expected to coincide with the appointment of the first chair of the new Independent Press Standards Organisation.

SNS director John McLellan said: “We want to engage as widely as possible as the industry charts its way forward for the years to come.”
