Gardening Australia editor made redundant amid restructure at NewsLifeMedia

In another round of restructuring at NewsLifeMedia, the editor of Gardening Australia has been made redundant, and a ‘homes’ desk created to work across numerous titles.

Nick Smith, publisher of the company’s home and lifestyle group, which includes both Gardening Australia and InsideOut, told Mumbrella that Claire Bradley, editor of InsideOut, will replace former Gardening Australia editor Jennifer Stackhouse, to become editor-in-chief across both titles. 

Sharon Misko, InsideOut’s creative director, will also carry out this role on Gardening Australia.

On the leadership spread across both magazines, Smith said: “We see some shared capabilities between Gardening Australia and InsideOut, but those in specialist roles will remain separate.”

Stackhouse’s last day was Friday.

Smith said the gardening magazine also aims to bring Costa Georgiadis, host of ABC TV show Gardening Australia, which licenses the name to NewsLifeMedia, closer to the title.

Bradley was appointed editor of InsideOut Magazine from Sunday Magazine in late May by Nicole Sheffield, the new boss of NewsLifeMedia, who has made a raft of changes since taking the helm in March. Bradley replaced Richard Waller.

At the time, Sheffield said in a press release: “Claire Bradley is a great editor with strong editorial and commercial nous. She has an excellent understanding of digital media and a passion for lifestyle content which makes her the ideal choice as editor at this exciting stage of evolution for Inside Out.”

  2. So what does the ABC think about having its name on a title that doesn’t even have a full-time editor?
