Newsquest has appointed Clare Snowdon as its new editor for West Wales, editing the weeklies the Western Telegraph, Tivy-side Advertiser, and South Wales Guardian.

Snowdon joined the South Wales Guardian in 2003 as an editorial assistant and was later promoted to the post of reporter. She left in 2017 to study management and business practice at the Open University, before rejoining the paper in 2019.

Snowdon said:

“I’m delighted to be appointed as the new editor for Newsquest’s West Wales titles.

“Regional news has been in my blood for more than 20 years and I’m beyond thrilled to be able to continue my career in west Wales working with a fantastic team. As the latest JICREG data shows, the Western Telegraph now reaches over 80pc of the people in Pembrokeshire each month.

“I know how important these titles are to the local communities that they serve and to be given the opportunity to further develop these iconic news brands is incredibly exciting.”
