ABSTRACT
News of Clive Milner's promotion to group managing director of newspaper division of News International (NI) caused barely a ripple in media circles. Milner hints that there are quite substantial reasons for the creation of his new role. Milner landed his first job as a sales executive on The Observer. Two years later, he joined NI when it was owned by Thomsons. He has since watched its takeover by the media mogul Rupert Murdoch and its move to Wapping. One aspect which he is likely to investigate is whether NI should move out of Wapping and buy a printing plant elsewhere.
