Wag the Dog CEO, Sandra Gordon, has announced that Glenda Nevill is the new editor of TheMediaOnline. Nevill spent 20 years in journalism including nine years with the Sunday Times in Cape Town, London and Johannesburg. She was launch editor of The Property Magazine’s Cape Town and Johannesburg editions, and edited The Big Issue for six years.
Nevill believes in the strong future of the on-line market. “I’ve been watching it for years and I’ve always wanted to get into this genre and experience its innovation. I am thrilled to be at the cusp of this constantly changing environment,” she comments.
After having conducted a perceptions survey among its subscribers in 2010, the relaunch and redesign of TheMediaOnline is in direct response to readers’ feedback. TheMediaOnline’s new site will provide editorial that informs, educates and challenges and it will also include social media applications.
“The redesign and relaunch of the ezine marks a new era in the site’s journey and I would like to turn it into the one-stop media resource that will include all the information on just one site, from news, reviews and moves to media education and even gossip,” says Nevill.
“This continuous exchange of information is the way forward and I plan on adopting an interactive stance with all who read the site, whether it’s through Facebook, Twitter or my blog,” explains Nevill.
Nevill is a media innovator and her experience extends into the fields of writing, strategic marketing, communications, research, public relations and reporting.
