We are delighted to welcome Keith Ridley, who has joined Prowse UK as a consultant editor. Keith had previously spent many years in the newspaper and media industry, most recently with the UK regional media and newspaper group, JPI Media.
Keith was the UK’s youngest ever editor when he took the reins of his home-town newspaper in Daventry, Northamptonshire, aged 21 and has edited newspapers across the midlands as well as in the south of England.
Keith contributes to local radio with a weekly BBC Sussex drive-time slot, talking about stories in the news. He also writes regularly for the Sussex lifestyle magazine, ETC. and he has advised the Conference Eastbourne team.
In his spare time, he enjoys all sports – particularly rugby and football – and dog walking on the south downs with wife Amanda and his two Siberian huskies.
Of his involvement with Prowse UK, he said: “I've seen some of the excellent work that Prowse has done for clients across Surrey, Sussex and the Gatwick Diamond region and I'm delighted to be part of such an innovative and energetic team”.
