Thomas Woodgate promoted to TV Week editor

Thomas Woodgate, TV Week’s deputy editor, has been promoted to the role of TV Week editor.

It comes two weeks after the announcement Emma Nolan, longstanding TV Week editor had departed the Bauer-owned publication to join Pacific Magazines’  WHO Magazine.

Woodgate has been part of the TV Week team for more than three years, most recently as deputy editor for the last 18 months.

Jayne Ferguson, general manager women’s lifestyle and entertainment, said Woodgate was a “key advocate” for TV Week.

“Over this time Thomas has made a significant contribution to the magazine, playing a key role in the TV Week Logie Awards and spearheading a number of one-shots for the brand,” Ferguson said.

“He is also a key advocate for TV Week, making regular radio appearances to comment on all things TV.”

Woodgate has worked in the media industry for 15 years, working as a freelance writer, editor and project manager before joining Bauer in 2014.

He said he was excited to continue championing the TV Week brand in his new role as editor.

“I am committed to building on its reputation as one of the country’s most trusted and much-loved magazine brands, whilst finding new ways to connect with our audience,” said Woodgate.

“With more channels, more shows, and more platforms than ever before, I look forward to guiding our loyal audiences through the ever-changing face of TV with advice on the best shows to watch and how to find them.”

His new role is effective immediately.

Woodgate’s new appointment follows a series of changes across various Bauer Media titles.

Nicole Byers, former editor of OK! Magazine, took the helm at The Australian Women’s Weekly (AWW) in July this year, and was replaced  by deputy editor Lucy Walker.

Last month, Bauer Media also announced a major restructure of its executive management team, appointed Fiorella Di Santo as general manager of publishing, and the departure of BauerWorks’ Eugene Varricchio.
