NUJ launches revamped The Journalist magazine

The National Union of journalist today sent out a relaunched version of its in-house magazine The Journalist.

The changes come as a result of former Times journalist Christine Buckley being voted in for a five-year term as the magazine’s new editor replacing Tim Gopsill, who retired last year after 21 years as editor.

The NUJ has described the revamp as the first major change in design and style of the title since it went from newspaper to magazine 17 years ago. The magazine had a redesign two years ago when it went from ten to six issues a year.

The new look magazine has brought in Ray Snoddy and Michael Cross as columnists.

The union said it has sought to make the magazine “more modern, attractive, informative and engaging” by working with design house, Surgerycreations.

Buckley said: “I’ve sought to make the new magazine reflective of the diverse, active union that the NUJ is, and I intend that it should echo the voices of our members from across the union.

“Communication with members is a cornerstone of how the NUJ operates, and The Journalist editor is elected in a union-wide ballot which affirms the publication’s independence of the union’s leadership and of any faction.”
