He joins after a spell at Future Publishing where he oversaw the growth and expansion of consumer-facing video game website CVG - and was voted editor of the year.
Ingham previously worked for Intent Media, Music Week's new owner, as associate and online editor on the games industry's trade weekly, MCV. Before that, he began his career as a reporter on Metro. He has also written for The Independent, T3 and The Evening Standard.
He commented: "Entertainment media publications don't come much more respected than Music Week. Even more excitingly, it's a brand that carries an almighty potential, particularly online.
"My lifelong passion for music burns brighter than ever, and I'm ecstatic to take up such a prestigious role right in the belly of the business."
Meanwhile, Darrell Carter has been appointed as sales manager for Music Week, starting first week in September. Carter is already responsible for sales on Music Week's sister trade publications Musical Instrument Professional (MI Pro) and Audio Pro International.
