Internet loves Ted

Ted Kessler, the celebrated Wanstead journalist who until this week edited Q Magazine, has been showered with internet praise after announcing that that the publication was to close.

He tweeted that coronavirus had forced the closure, though it’s hardly a secret that times have been hard for all sorts of print publications in recent months and years.

Ted tweeted:

Messages of support came from the great and good – film critic Mark Kermode, author Stuart Maconie, comedian Al Murray and many others – which you can read in full here.

In 2015 Ted interviewed John Cryer as part of the Wanstead Fringe.

We wish him and his former colleagues all the best in their next moves.
