“Kim is an experienced and focused editor with extensive media experience and a strong market understanding. She will look to expand our mass female offering and I’m anticipating a number of launches in the women’s space under her leadership. This combined with the reach, engagement and connection of theKidspot.com.au platform and the smarts of Kim Wilson will be an unstoppable force.”

We’ve seen traffic and engagement growth already for the site which is very satisfying. Kim leading our editorial direction focused on ‘her’, through career, relationships, home, celebrity, news, health and well-being, rounds out our expanded market offering and I can’t wait to see what she will create.”

I’m really inspired by Nicole Sheffield’s vision, and the energy and trajectory of NewsLifeMedia – and honoured to have the opportunity to build on the successes of the much-lovedKidspot.com.au. I look forward to working with Prue Cox and the brilliant Kidspot team to give Australian women the most positive, dynamic and engaging digital community in the market.”
