IPC Media has announced the appointment of a new Publishing Director for its music titles, NME and Uncut. Emily Hutchings, who previously oversaw the publisher’s Now and Soaplife magazines, and before that had stints with both NME and Uncut, takes over from Paul Cheal, the IPC music titles’ long time commercial overseer, who has himself moved within the company to become Digital Publishing Director.

She reports to IPC Inspire MD Paul Williams, who told CMU: “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 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”.

Emily herself added: “Both NME and Uncut are very close to my heart and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with both teams again. Paul has done a fantastic job in pushing the brands forward and I can’t wait to take up the challenge of furthering this momentum and success”.
