Big news has been revealed this week by Electronics Weekly.  Josh Brooks who has been with the company for over three years and took on the role as editor in April, has made the decision to leave Metropolis at the end of the current year. Josh has been part of the Metropolis team for over 7 years but has decided to dive into a new challenge at the beginning of 2018, and will be replaced by Clive Couldwell.

Josh Brooks said “It’s been a real privilege to work on Electronics Weekly for the past three years and I am grateful for the warm welcome I’ve had in this industry. I am sure Clive will be an excellent editor for what is a great title. I wish both the industry and team here at Electronics Weekly every success in the future.”

Clive Couldwell currently has the editing role at the sister title AV magazine, and will now take on the role as group editor. This will be a big challenge for Clive but we are sure he will thrive in his new position. Clive has more than three decades of experience, winning awards in print and has had various editorial roles in the electronics industry.

Clive Couldwell said: “I’ve known and admired Electronics Weekly for as long as I’ve been a journalist, so it’s a great honor to join the team and I’m looking forward to working on the title and getting to know the industry better. I hope that my background and portfolio of skills in a range of markets and media will complement what is one of the most experienced teams in the industry.”

Electronics Weekly also plans to recruit a news editor to increase its news output in print and online. Nick Stimpson who currently has the role of managing director of Metropolis Business Media will now become publisher of Electronics Weekly and will assist running the title alongside Clive Couldwell and commercial Director Steve Ray.

Nick has stated that: “Clive is a talented editor who has developed and launched many new products across AV Magazine’s portfolio in his time on the title. He will be a great addition to Electronics Weekly’s editorial team and I look forward to working with him in his new role. I’d also like to thank Josh for his contribution at Metropolis over the past seven years and wish him all the best for the next stage in his career.”

At Napier we are wishing everyone the best of luck in their new job roles and future careers. It’s exciting to see Electronics Weekly making changes to their editorial team and we can’t wait to see what direction the title takes.
