It’s the end of an era

Editor finally calls it quits

AFTER what Paula Joye described as one of the hardest years of her life, the Madison editor has finally resigned from her post at ACP.

After suffering criticism over falling circulation and a personal battle with pneumonia in 2009, the move is no doubt a relief for Joye.

Speaking to Hush yesterday, she insists she harbours no bad feelings towards ACP.

“Really and truly. I am going to take some time out: I’ve got two young kids,” she said.

“I want to do some other things but the company has afforded me great opportunities over my 15 years there.”

Joye is on leave for another week and will return to the position until the end of her tenure in February.

Yes, it will be the end of an era at ACP when Joye leaves. What will the girls do? Gravitate towards Bronwyn McCahon and Alison Veness McGourty I guess.

Question is, what will Joye be doing after magazines? All bets point to a career in other media like her bestie, Mia Freedman. Will it be a career in television, starting a mummy’s blog that regurgitates content or writing a book first?

Did you know…

louboutin-sequin2.jpgThe Australian magazine market is due to expand with the glossy market expecting the likes of Grazia and Glamour to the launch this year.

They will join the likes of:

Marie Claire
Harpers Bazaar
Shop Til You Drop
Women’s Health
New Woman

Am I missing any?

I doubt we need more mags in the market, but I love UK Grazia. I just hope they don’t make it too Australian. And with the UK Glamour, I hope they don’t use content from the US and UK versions… though it is going to be published by the same people who make Australian Vogue, so you can’t put it past them.

P.S. Hope you all had a fabulous Valentine’s Day. If you are a beauty editor at a leading magazine, you would have had a fabulous day – what with all the “gifts” they all got just for clawing their way into the right jobs.
