The Australian Women’s Weekly has promoted Juliet Rieden to the role of editor from deputy editor, a position she’s held since January 2010.
Rieden has also been at the helm of the AWW as acting editor-in-chief, following the departure of Helen McCabe in January this year.
Kim Doherty (nee Wilson) kicks off her new career move as editor-in-chief of AWW as of Monday, relieving Rieden of her acting duties so she can step into her new spot as editor, which is effective immediately.
Among her many exclusive stories for the magazine, Rieden has interviewed Crown Princess Mary and HRH Prince Charles for The Weekly’s 80th birthday issue and was Bauer’s Writer of the Year in 2014.
“The Weekly is a unique publication unparalleled internationally and it has been an honour to work on the title for the past six and a half years,” Rieden said.
“I am thrilled to take on the role of editor and look forward to working together with Kim to continue to bring great stories to the readers and evolve this iconic brand.”
