Phil Alexander, editor-in-chief of MOJO, Kerrang! and now Q magazine, has vowed to create further collaboration with Bauer’s radio brands.
Senior Editor Matt Mason, who has been working closely with Bauer’s Executive Content Director Jane Johnson in leading the Q editorial team, will continue to run the day-to-day on the magazine and will now report to Phil.
Phil’s appointment to Q marks the development of a senior music content team consisting of Q Senior Editor Matt Mason, MOJO Senior Editor Danny Eccleston and Kerrang! Editor James McMahon.
“There are lots of opportunities to work with our colleagues in radio and to create genuinely unique programming based on high quality editorial,” says Phil who currently presents MOJO Rocks, a weekly show on Planet Rock. “Bauer is a unique position to deliver genuinely exciting cross-platform ideas.”
Phil added: “Q plays a huge role to play in UK music and there’s more that it can do. We expect it to grow and evolve. I look forward to helping Matt Mason and a team that is full of talented people do that.“
