IPC Inspire has today announced the appointment of Emily Hutchings as publishing director for NME and Uncut.
Hutchings, who will work on both the print and online magazines, will replace Paul Cheal, who is moving to become digital publishing director across IPC Media.
Throughout her careers at IPC, Hutchings has already worked on both NME and Uncut.
Paul Williams, IPC Inspire managing director, said: “I’m delighted to welcome someone of Emily’s talent and experience to Inspire at what is an exciting time for our music brands. With its multi-platform proposition, NME is at the forefront of many of IPC’s print and digital innovations, while imminent developments are also in the pipeline for both Uncut and Uncut.co.uk.
“With her impressive track record in the competitive woman’s weekly sector allied to the in-depth knowledge she already has of both music brands, I can’t think of a better person to drive their development.”
A starting date has not yet been announced.
