Bauer names editors for new magazines

Sido Kitchin

German magazine giant Bauer has made key editorial staff appointments ahead of its takeover of several APN titles.

In January Bauer was given Commerce Commission approval  to take over the  New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, NZ Listener, Simply You, Simply You Living and Crème.

Bauer Media has appointed Woman’s Day editor Sido Kitchin to editor-in-chief at Woman’s Day and NZ Woman’s Weekly, following Bauer’s takeover of several APN titles. Her appointment begins March 3.

Fiona Fraser – who was editor of Australian Woman’s Weekly – now takes on the editorship of the New Zealand Woman’s Weekly.

Bauer chief executive Paul Dykzeul says Pamela Stirling continues as editor of NZ Listener.

NBR MediaWatch columnist David Cohen reports at least five Listener staff have gone under the takeover, which will also see staff switch to PCs from Macs to cut costs. 

Virtually no production or subscription staff were kept under the takeover, which affected about half of approximately 65 APN magazine staff. 

Key appointments:

Woman’s Day and NZ Woman’s Weekly (editor-in-chief) Sido Kitchin

NZ Woman’s Weekly (editor) Fiona Fraser

NZ Listener (editor) Pamela Stirling

The Australian Women’s Weekly (editor) Cath Bennett

Simply You Style (editor) Trudi Brewer

Home New Zealand and Simply You Living (editor) Jeremy Hansen

Crème (editor) Kristina Rapley
