Bizarre's Godfrey joins SUMO.tv

LONDON - Bizarre magazine editor Alex Godfrey has been appointed controller of video-sharing TV and online community, SUMO.tv.

Godfrey will be tasked with helping to build the SUMO.tv brand in both the UK and overseas. Key responsibilities include commissioning programmes and supervising the schedule.

Godfrey has been editor of Bizarre since 2003. He has also been deputy editor of Hotdog magazine and film editor of Jack Magazine.

SUMO.tv offers users more than 3,000 online channels, with more than five million unique users visiting the site each month.

James Brown, SUMO.tv group creative and editorial director, said: "(Godfrey) was the first person I thought of when looking for someone to oversee the day to day content of the channel and website. At Bizarre he managed an extremely profitable magazine with content that was far removed from the mainstream."
