New Media Age has made a number of editorial changes in a bid to grow its coverage of the internet, mobile and interactive TV industries.
Michael Nutley, currently editor of the Centaur weekly trade title, will become editor-in-chief, while Justin Pearse, the current deputy, will move up to editor. Features editor Nic Howell becomes deputy editor, with a news editor and an online/research analyst being recruited.
The moves are part of NMA’s plans to grow its online proposition (www.nma.co.uk) and boost its events. Publisher Andy Oakes said the changes enabled the magazine to cover particular elements of the sector in greater depth.
On the future growth of NMA, Nutley said: “It’s no longer about digital business, it’s about business. In the 11-year history of the magazine, when we started we covered everything in new media, because there wasn’t very much.
“As time went on, we focused on e-business and online marketing, but the whole rest of business is also using the technology, and there is an opportunity for us to go out and cover other areas again.” Nutley said part of his job as editor-in-chief will be to find out what people want from the title. Its online offering would be “flexible” about content and subject to “testing, testing, testing”.
