Tim Shipman is New Sunday Times Political Editor

SHIPPERS
As Media Guido exclusively revealed on Twitter last night Tim Shipman, the deputy political editor of the Daily Mail, has won the race to succeed Isabel Oakeshott as the new Sunday Times political editor.

Recognised as one of the toughest jobs in journalism, it is often the last job in journalism for the position holder. The demand for scoops is tough, the competition is fierce and the paper is reluctant to employ the cheque-book to buy up stories. Good luck Shippers…

UPDATE: Media Guardian still haven’t reported the story 17 hours later. Wake up! You snooze, you lose…
