Are Media Creates Three Editorial Divisions To Drive Growth & Talent Development

Erin Holohan, editor of Woman’s Day, has been promoted to celebrity editorial director; TV Week editor Amber Giles will lead the entertainment group and Kate Kirsten, editor of Take 5, becomes the editorial director of the real life division. 

Editors of the six weeklies will report to the editorial director and announcements of editors for Woman’s Day, TV Week and Take 5 will be made in due course. 

Connolly said: “This new structure positions our weekly brands to take advantage of future growth opportunities, enables increased career progression and fosters a culture of mentoring and development for all our editorial teams.

“I will work closely with the editorial directors to develop new strategies, commercial opportunities and brand extensions, enabling our talented editors to focus on what they do best, which is producing quality content for our audiences each week.”
