Fowler study

Neil Fowler, the Toronto Sun's former publisher and CEO, will tackle a study of the decline of regional newspapers in England next year, says Guardian blogger Roy Greenslade.

Greenslade says the one-year Guardian research fellowship at Nuffield College, Oxford, begins in October 2010.

Fowler, 52, knows the news biz. Prior to his two-year Sun run, his UK editing jobs included the Lincolnshire Echo, the Derby Evening Mail, the Journal in Newcastle and the Cardiff-based Western Mail.

After leaving the Toronto Sun suddenly in the fall of 2005, he became editor of Which? magazine in January of 2006, returning to his UK roots. He left Which? last November saying he needed a break from editing..


  1. Well, I can think of one other guy ...

  2. No one — I repeat, no one — did more immediate damage to the Toronto Sun product than Neil Fowler and the two pompous twits he brought in from England to re-design the Sun. If he "knows" the news biz, God helps us all.

  3. Now I've been called many things - but never a twit!
    Love to all, from one of the "pompous twits".
