Australian Traveller Media, publisher of travel media brands Australian Traveller and International Traveller, will combine its print and digital editorial teams to create a single content team lead by current digital editor, Katie Carlin who will assume the role of head of content. The change will take place on 1 December 2022.
“Our print products have been inspiring our readers to get out and see Australia and the world in a unique way for 16 years, and they will continue to do so,” said Australian Traveller Media Founder and managing director, Quentin Long. “Our ability to have dedicated editorial teams focusing on digital and print has served us well and is one of the reasons our magazines have maintained their readers and subscribers.”
“As we formulated our plans for 2023 and beyond, it became clear that now was the right time for us to do what most magazine publishers have done over the past decade and restructure the business to reflect our growth in digital and our future priorities,” Long continued.
As part of the restructure, longtime editorial director, Leigh Ann Pow, will depart the business. “Leigh Ann’s leadership of the content agenda within Australian Traveller Media and the travel publishing industry has been peerless,” said Long. “She has brought incredible creativity and imagination to the business and leaves behind a legacy of excellence and an incredible team that will continue to innovate and lead the content agenda.”
The new content team will comprise seven travel journalists lead by Katie Carlin and supported by Imogen Eveson who has been with the business for six years and has been promoted from deputy editor to print editor. Carlin has been with Australian Traveller Media since 2018 as editor of the company’s digital products Australiantraveller.com and Internationaltraveller.com. As the company’s head of content, Carlin’s remit will expand to include digital, print and commercial content.
“One of the things I love most about working for Australian Traveller Media is that we aren’t afraid of change; we are always striving to find new ways to evolve and innovate and combining the two editorial teams at this point in time allows us to do that,” said Carlin. “While my focus over the past four years has been on growing our digital products, by combining our two content arms into one, all areas of the business will flourish.”
Carlin added that Everson will bring a wealth of knowledge, passion and experience to her new role as Print Editor and predicted that Everson will continue to shape the company’s print products under her leadership and bring the same insight to digital. Australian Traveller Media is in the process of recruiting additional editorial roles and looks forward to introducing the full team in the coming weeks.
