James Blunt has signed on to be the first ever guest editor for the global edition of the Metro newspaper for a day. The publication reaches 20 countries and more than 150 cities, with a worldwide readership of over 20 million.
The British singer songwriter will be working from the Metro Rome office where he will collaborate with Sakari Pitkanen, Global Editor-in-Chief. “I have long been fascinated by the media and am excited to have the chance to go behind the scenes at Metro and experience things from the other side,” Blunt remarked. “With so much going on in the world right now, I am looking forward to editing a newspaper, raising the profile of subjects close to my heart and hopefully have a little fun along the way. I might even give myself a good review!”
