NewsLifeMedia’s prestige and lifestyle director Nick Smith today announced that Neale Whitaker will step down as editor-in-chief of Vogue Living in June to concentrate on his varied media commitments including two television series currently in production. 

He will remain with the Vogue Living team as editor-at-large and continue to write his weekly Living column for the Sunday mastheads’ Stellar magazine. 

Whitaker joined News in 2014 in the dual role of editor-in-chief of prestige design and lifestyle brand, Vogue Living, and design columnist for News Corp Australia’s network of Sunday newspapers. 

Smith said: “Neale has led Vogue Living for two and a half years and during this time he has refreshed the magazine, grown the brand through digital and social – in fact, doubling the already formidable social footprint to over 2.5million – and built an impressive events series. He also steered the brand brilliantly through the 50th anniversary of Vogue Living. It is a very special collector’s issue and a testament to Neale. I’d like to thank him for the terrific job he’s done as editor of Vogue Living and couldn’t be more delighted that he is remaining with the brand as editor-at-large.” 

Whitaker said: “It was a very big decision to step down but I feel privileged to have edited Vogue Living, particularly through such a significant milestone as the brand’s 50th anniversary. I also feel confident that it is absolutely the right time to leave the day to day operations with the very talented team here, while being pleased to continue as Vogue Living’s editor-at-large.”

NewsLifeMedia will announce a new editor of Vogue Living in due course.  In the meantime, associate publisher – homes Claire Bradley will continue to guide the brand strategy for Vogue Living. Recently promoted to this new expanded role, Ms Bradley is driving the publishing strategies for NewsLifeMedia’s homes portfolio of brands – Country Style, Homelife.com.au, Inside Out and Vogue Living. She continues to hold the position of editor-in-chief of Inside Out.

Vogue Australia’s editor-in-chief Edwina McCann will care-take the editorial of the brand until a new editor is appointed.
