Uncut editor to move to Mojo

By | Published on Friday 17 November 2017


Bauer Media announced earlier this week that it has headhunted the current editor of Uncut – published by its rival Time Inc – to head up its own monthly music title Mojo. John Mulvey will join the mag next year after thirteen years with Uncut.

He basically takes over from Phil Alexander, who spent a long time leading all things Mojo, in later years as part of a wider remit working on various music titles at Bauer. Back in August, Alexander announced he was joining Wasted Talent, to help expand the independent magazine publisher’s rock media operations which centre on Kerrang, the rock weekly the company acquired from Bauer earlier this year.

Commenting on his new job at Mojo, Mulvey said: “I’m really proud to have been offered the best job in British music journalism, and to be joining such a gifted and long-established team. For the last three decades, Mojo has been the essential read for serious music fans all over the world, a place of wisdom, insight and discovery that understands why great old records should always be cherished, and how great new records are being made every year. It’ll be an honour to uphold Mojo’s traditions and values and to lead it into the future”.

His new boss at Bauer, Patrick Horton, added: “I’m delighted that John is joining Mojo. His track record in quality music journalism and in creating great products for music fans has been proven over many years. John will be joining the world’s best music magazine at a pivotal moment as we develop and extend it to reach new audiences. I look forward to welcoming him into the Mojo team”.
