Emma Nolan to join WHO Magazine after 15 years with TV Week

Bauer Media’s TV Week editor in chief, Emma Nolan, is set to depart the company after 15 years to join rival Pacific Magazines as editor of WHO Magazine.

It comes almost two weeks after the announcement former WHO Magazine editor Shane Sutton had departed after two years.

Nolan will join WHO in December.

WHO’s deputy editor Amy Reedy is currently working as editor, and will continue do so until Nolan joins the company.

Nolan first joined TV Week in 2002, and since then has led the editorial team and the TV Week Logie Awards.

Commenting on her departure, Nolan said: “I feel honoured to have worked for such an iconic brand. I’ve worked with some amazing people at Bauer, and I’m very proud of the direction we have taken TV Week and the Logies over the past 15 years.”

Jayne Ferguson, general manager, women’s lifestyle and entertainment said Nolan had been “instrumental” in maintaining TV Week’s position as the country’s number on TV magazine.

“She has also been the driving force behind the TV Week Logie Awards for the past 15 years, which are today recognised as Australia’s leading TV and celebrity awards,” Ferguson added.

“We will miss her and wish her all the best for the future.”

In an internal email, Gereurd Roberts, chief executive officer at Pacific Magazines, informed his staff Nolan would commence in December.

“I am very pleased to announce that we have appointed Emma Nolan to the role of Editor, WHO,” Roberts said.

“Emma joins Pacific from Bauer Media where she has held the position of Editor, TV Week for the last 15 years, and brings with her strong celebrity relationships and an exciting vision to work with the team and grow WHO into the future.

“Please join me in congratulating Emma on this appointment and welcoming her to Pacific.”

The news comes two months after Nicole Byers, former editor of OK! Magazine, took the helm at The Australian Women’s Weekly (AWW) and was replaced  by deputy editor Lucy Walker.

It also comes a week after a major restructure of Bauer Media’s executive management team.

Nolan’s replacement is yet to be announced.
