Uncut Editor Allan Jones is leaving the magazine at the end of the month, its publisher IPC Media has confirmed.

A music journalist since 1974, one-time Melody Maker writer Jones launched the publication back in 1997, with his departure first revealed last week. Current Deputy Editor John Mulvey will take over in his stead.

Uncut Publishing Director Jo Smalley says of Jones’ time in charge of the mag: “Allan is one of a handful of editors whose encyclopedic knowledge and a history of delivering exclusives made him a legend within our industry and with our readers. Uncut was his idea, and he launched and guided it to great success at IPC, never losing sight of what affluent men with a passion for music wanted. He also cultivated a fantastically talented team at Uncut and I know he will be sorely missed by us all”.
