Lindsay Hamilton, Reporter, Evening Telegraph

When did you join DC Thomson?

In August 2014

What’s your role in DC Thomson? 


I previously worked as a reporter at The Press and Journal in Aberdeen, a position I held for ten years before leaving to have family. I returned to journalism at the beginning of 2014 and when the position at DC Thomson became available I was keen to get involved.  I joined the company as the Evening Telegraph’s local government correspondent, a role I currently fulfil as well as investigating and writing general news stories.

What makes your working day enjoyable?

I enjoy going out and about meeting people in Dundee as well as now having a good working knowledge of current affairs in the city.
Tell us a little about the part you play in DC Thomson a success?
Hopefully by sourcing, investigating and writing about ongoing events in Dundee people are keen to buy the paper and therefore I contribute in that way to the paper’s success.

What is your highlight of being part of DC Thomson?

Being part of a daily newspaper that has its finger on the pulse of what is happening and how it affects the people of Dundee.
