Bauer Media appoints John Mulvey as Editor of MOJO magazine
Bauer Media has appointed John Mulvey as Editor of monthly music magazine MOJO.
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
Mulvey joins Bauer from Time Inc. UK where he was Editor of Uncut, which he joined in 2004 – taking on the role of Deputy Editor in 2007 and Editor in 2014.
Commenting on his new role, Mulvey said: "I'm really proud to have been offered the best job in British music journalism and to be joining such a gifted and long-established team.
For the last three decades, MOJO has been the essential read for serious music fans all over the world – a place of wisdom, insight and discovery that understands why great old records should always be cherished and how great new records are being made every year. It'll be an honour to uphold MOJO‘s traditions and values and to lead it into the future," he continued.
Patrick Horton, Managing Director of Bauer’s Sport & Entertainment brands, added: “I’m delighted that John is joining MOJO. His track record in quality music journalism and in creating great products for music fans has been proven over many years. John will be joining the world’s best music magazine at a pivotal moment as we develop and extend it to reach new audiences. I look forward to welcoming him into the MOJO team.”
According to ABC figures for the Jan-Dec 2016 period, MOJO achieved a total monthly circulation of 67,518 for print and digital copies. The brand has a proud tradition of delivering world-class journalism on the greatest musicians of all-time and features a bespoke cover-mounted CD each month.
Mulvey joins Bauer Media on February 5, 2018 and will report to Horton.
