InStyle: sales are climbing steadily
Three high-profile magazine titles parted company with their editors this week.
IPC Media's InStyle is seeking an editor after Dee Nolan, who launched the title in the UK, was promoted to editor-at-large within Time Inc. Nolan will now work across a number of the company's titles from its New York office.
Deputy editor Louise Chunn will become acting editor while a replacement is sought.
In addition, InStyle publisher Katy Egan has been promoted to the post of business development manager across the entire Southbank portfolio.
IPC is now preparing for a new marketing push of the title, appointing Walsh Trott Chick Smith to the creative brief.
IPC Southbank marketing director Helen Farquhar said: "InStyle's sales are climbing steadily and we are confident that the work WTCS will be doing for the brand, backed by a substantial marketing investment, will accelerate growth."
Meanwhile, the Radio Times was reeling from the resignation of its editor Nigel Horne, after less than a year in the job.
A Radio Times spokesman said:"Nigel has decided to resign to pursue a long-standing project of his own."
In another departure, Hello! editor-in-chief Phil Hall has left to head up a new contract publishing division at the Press Association.
Hello! has denied that the former Sunday Express editor Amanda Platell has been picked to fill the post.
