Condy: will be based in Bristol
BBC Music Magazine has named Oliver Condy, former deputy editor of Classic FM magazine, as its new editor.
Condy, who has an MA in music, joined Classic FM on work experience in 2000. He was appointed deputy editor in February.
Condy now faces a move to Bristol, following the BBC’s takeover of Origin Publishing and its decision to transfer BBC Music, BBC History and BBC Wildlife magazines to Origin’s offices in the city.
The title is still in the process of recruiting a completely new team.
Condy said he hoped to retain the magazine’s “trustworthy voice” and stressed it would not lose any of its quality.
“I want people to come away feeling that they have learnt something from every single issue,” he said.
Former editor Helen Wallace is to remain in London as a consultant editor.
