Key Media to close HR Leader magazine, relaunch Risk

HR Leader magazine, one of two titles bought by Key Media from Lexis Nexis last week, is to be folded into one of Key Media’s existing HR titles, Human Capital.

Agreements with current HR Leader subscribers and advertisers will be unaffected by the development, Key Media has stated.

As well as HR Capital, Key Media also publishes HRM magazine in Singapore.

Justin Kennedy, Key Media’s publishing director, said: “Both publications [HR Leader and Risk magazines] are a good fit for our business – we have been steadily building our offering in the HR market and the incorporation of HR Leader into Human Capital magazine will further expand our reach.”

Risk will be relaunched, and will continue to be published monthly.

“Risk is a new area for us but one we have been looking at for a while and we believe Risk magazine is a strong product that will complement our existing portfolio,” said Kennedy.
