Guest Editor Karen Buchanan takes over the EDP

The Eastern Daily Press saw a change in its staff today as BBC presenter Karen Buchanan swapped roles with EDP editor Peter Waters.

It was all part of the Eastern Daily Press 140th anniversary celebrations.

Taking part in the running of the paper Karen made the decision on which photos to use, the sports front page lead, as well as giving her verdict on what would be featured in tomorrow's paper.

While Karen acted as guest editor, Peter Waters presented Karen's show live on the BBC.

Listeners were able to hear what happens at an editorial meeting and readers of the EDP will be able to read all about her experiences as editor tomorrow.
