Congratulations is due to Megan Townsend, who has now started work as Mixmag’s new Deputy Digital Editor. She’s previously worked for The Independent, the Evening Standard newspaper and even did a stint as an intern at ITV helping with General Election coverage in 2015.
Naturally, I wish her well in her new position. I hope that they’re paying her well – she complained in the past of having debts. Searches online reveal the average salary of a person in her position is somewhere in the range of £35,000 per year.
The only question now remains of what’s going to change with her leadership. Seb Wheeler is gone, with no word yet as to his replacement. Is Mixmag going to become an exciting, reinvigorated publication – or is it doomed to remain “tired”, as former editor Duncan Dick once called it?
It can’t possibly get any more anodyne than the digital offering already is, surely…
