NewsLifeMedia has appointed experienced foodie editor Brodee Myers-Cooke editor-in-chief of its soon to be launched Taste.com.au magazine.
Myers-Cooke (pictured) assumes responsibility for the magazine which will first hit stands in September.
Myers-Cooke was editor-in-chief of the recently axed Woolworths Australian Good Taste magazine for seven years.
Nicole Sheffield, managing director NewsLifeMedia, said she was delighted Myers-Cooke will be bringing the magazine to life.
“Taste.com.au magazine will deliver a multi-platform reader experience and what Brodee has planned for the magazine is incredibly exciting.”
Fiona Nilsson, group publisher of food brands for NewsLifeMedia, said local food is “about to get a whole lot tastier”.
“Taste.com.au magazine will be a brand new food experience for Australian readers. Every issue will feature all new content purposely created for the magazine that works as a seamless package of recipes, features and compelling extras, all accessed across taste.com.au’s platforms. The magazine completes our offering and allows us to offer our clients the most targeted marketing solutions.”
NewsLifeMedia and Woolworths announced they were dumping Australian Good Taste in May this year with the last issue set for July 24.
The publisher had previously announced the launch of Taste.com.au magazine in April.
