Kerrang!, Mojo and Q magazine's publishing director Rimi Atwal (pictured) has left Bauer Media with David Bostock taking on publishing duties for the company’s music titles.
Bauer confirmed Atwal’s departure, citing “a strategic review of the London Lifestyle publishing structure” as the reason behind the decision.
ABC figures for the first half of 2013, released earlier this month, showed declines in the net circulation of all of Bauer Media’s music titles, with Kerrang! faring the best, dipping just 2.5%.
Talking about the company’s magazine offering in general, Bauer Media’s chief executive Paul Keenan said, “ABC figures are one important part of a wider picture that makes up a brand’s reach and influence. Our focus is all about building valuable audience reach through delivering content wherever, whenever and however consumers want it.”
