Are Media is thrilled to announce promotions across its six weekly titles, as part of the first phase of the titles’ new growth structure.
Under group publisher Fiona Connoly’s leadership, three new editorial divisions have been created: Celebrity (Woman’s Day and New Idea), Entertainment (Who and TV Week) and Real Life (that’s life! and Take 5). In line with these changes, editorial directors for each division have been appointed.
Erin Holohan, editor of Woman’s Day, is now Celebrity editorial director, while TV Week editor Amber Giles will lead Entertainment, and Kate Kirsten, editor of Take 5, has been promoted to editorial director of the Real Life division.
According to Connolly, these changes will “provide opportunities for the development and progression of the talented editorial teams, an enhanced focus on brand differentiation and new commercial opportunities.”
She added: “This new structure positions our weekly brands to take advantage of future growth opportunities, enables increased career progression and fosters a culture of mentoring and development for all our editorial teams. I will work closely with the editorial directors to develop new strategies, commercial opportunities and brand extensions, enabling our talented editors to focus on what they do best, which is producing quality content for our audiences each week.”
Recruitment is currently underway to fill the open roles of editor for Woman’s Day, TV Week and Take 5.
