Crossword Genius

Listens to fellow journalists (5)


I believe the answer is:


'listens to' is the definition.
('heed' can be a synonym of 'listen to')

'fellow journalists' is the wordplay.
'fellow' becomes 'he' ('he' refers to a man).
'journalists' becomes 'eds'.

(Other definitions for heeds that I've seen before include "Takes to heart" , "Takes account of" , "Pays close attention" , "Attends to" , "Takes notice of" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
