Jim Oldfield is one of the best-known journalists in the north. He spent nearly 20 years as a staff reporter on The Sun and Daily Mirror, and a further seven editing Yorkshire’s most talked-about local newspapers.
His national newspaper career saw him produce exclusive front pages for Britain’s top tabloids before, at regional level, reaching the finals of The Paul Foot Award – Britain's most prestigious investigative journalism award – while running a series of eight newspapers in Doncaster.
He then went on to rescue the ailing South Yorkshire Times which, in a year, became the county's best performing weekly newspaper.
Alex Vessey initially made her mark in journalism, specialising in beauty and women’s interest features in magazines and newspapers. As the face of Doncaster's glossy Profile magazine, she was recognised across the county.
From there, she moved on to help run the South Yorkshire Times newsdesk
With five years of experience as one of the county's toughest reporters, Alex knows exactly what goes on the page... and what goes in the bin.
Her nose for news, crisp copy and a formidable contacts book help make her the complete PR professional.
