Alan Rusbridger outside the Guilhall before his talk last week

Alan Rus­bridger gave his last talk in post as Edi­tor of the Guardian last week at London’s Guild­hall of Music with Helena Kennedy QC ask­ing ques­tions before open­ing them up to the floor. From Jonathan Aitkin to Wik­ileaks and Snow­den, Rus­bridger has over­seen the devel­op­ment of the news­pa­per at the helm for twenty years. Cur­rently the print edi­tion ranks eighth in UK cir­cu­la­tion: the Guardian online edi­tion cur­rently serves 1.2 mil­lion daily users world­wide, hav­ing just over­taken the New York Times. Rus­bridger will now chair the Scott Trust with Katharine Viner tak­ing over as edi­tor after win­ning an over­whelm­ing staff bal­lot ear­lier this year.
