Are Media appoints new editors for weekly titles

Are Media recently announced 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 were created: Celebrity (Woman’s Day and New Idea), Entertainment (Who and TV Week) and Real Life (That’s life! and Take 5).

And while the editorial directors for each division were revealed earlier this month, until now the roles of editor for Woman’s Day, TV Week and Take 5 had not yet been filled. 

However, Are Media is excited to announce that New Idea associate editor, Kietley Isrin, has become the editor of Woman’s Day. Since 2014, Kietley has held news and features roles across Woman’s Day, TV Week and New Idea.

TV Week associate editor, Stephen Downie, has also been promoted to editor of TV Week. Stephen has worked across Are Media and Pacific Magazine brands for more than a decade on NW, New Idea and TV Week.

That’s Life! Deputy editor, Rachel Williams, has been appointed as the Take 5 editor. Starting her magazine career as assistant editor of Take a Break in the UK, Rachel also worked as a features editor for the Press Association and That’s Life!.
