Medium Rare appoints Fairfax Media’s Sarah Maguire as QantasLink editor

spirit magazineFairfax Media’s travel editor for The Sun-Herald Sarah Maguire has been appointed editor of QantasLink’s Spirit magazine by publishing house Medium Rare.

Maguire has worked at Fairfax Media for the past decade in a variety of roles including as digital producer for smh.com.au home page and features editor of the Sun Herald.

Most recently, she was digital producer for the tablet and online editions of Good Weekend and Sunday Life magazines.

Maguire said: “I grew up in Alice Springs, Launceston and Ballarat, and I’ve lived on the north-west coast of Tasmania, Gympie and Noosa. I am from regional Australia. As travel editor for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Sun-Herald, I produced more than 400 travel sections. With my experience and background, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to take QantasLink’s inflight magazine to the next level.”

Medium Rare Content Agency picked up the contract to publish the inflight magazine earlier this month.

Gerry Reynolds, managing director of Medium Rare, said: “Sarah is the ideal editor to oversee the redesign and reformatting of Spirit magazine, which will re-launch as a bi-monthly publication from the September 2016 issue.

“Her digital experience also makes her ideally suited to launching a special Spirit section in the Qantas magazine app and for expanding the rural and regional content on travelinsider.com.au, Qantas’s travel inspiration web site. We’re very excited to have her join the Medium Rare team.”
