Emap has appointed Guy Procter as editor of its hill-walking magazine Trail.
He replaces Ed Kenyon, who has been promoted to publisher on Emap’s country titles. Proctor was features editor of Ride, after a stint as features editor on Trail. He was also named PPA consumer magazine writer of the year in 2001.
Proctor said he was excited about his first editorship. There will not be a major redesign but he hopes to double the “gear” section, adding more clothing and equipment for hill walking.
