Total Film names new online editor
Future, the media group, has announced the appointment of Matt Risley as the new online editor of Total Film.
Risley joins the site from Sky where he was web editor and producer for Sky Atlantic and Sky 1 online and will commence his new role on 21 January when he will be tasked with building on recent success which saw Total Film notch up 2.49m global unique views in December – its most successful month ever.
Risley said:: "I'm hugely excited to work on one of the biggest, boldest and freshest movie websites around, and can't wait to get started. From a personal point of view, having read the magazine since I was an impressionable film-loving teen, I'm giddy at the possibilities and chomping at the fanboy bit."
Lee Nutter, Publisher of Total Film, says: “Matt’s breadth of experience makes him the perfect candidate to build on totalfilm.com’s growing success. He inherits a site which continues to go from strength-to-strength and will lead a dedicated team to ensure totalfilm.com is a global player in the world of movies.”
