James Macintyre leaves the New Statesman

By New Statesman

James Macintyre has left the New Statesman after two years as political correspondent in order to work on other projects.

His departure is entirely amicable.

James joined the New Statesman as a political correspondent in September 2008, having previously worked for the Independent, the BBC and Granada.

James said: “I have worked for the NS for over two years during a fascinating period of change both on the magazine and in politics. It is now the right time for me to pursue other projects. I wish the NS every success and I’m looking forward to writing for the magazine in the future.”

Jason Cowley, New Statesman editor, said: “James has been a popular and enthusiastic member of the team. He is an excellent reporter and his interviews, with the likes of Rowan Williams and other leading figures in the culture, have been outstanding. He will be much missed by his former colleagues.”
