Media: Media Briefs - Davis and Pearce share role at IPC tx

Kate Finnigan, editor of EMAP’s pre-teen celebrity magazine Big, which the publisher decided to close last week, has been appointed deputy editor on J17. Finnigan had been editor of Big for less than six months before the decision was taken to pull the plug on the title. She starts at J17 on Monday and will work alongside editor Sophie Wilson. Tony Cross, publisher of Big and Sky, said: ’We relaunched the title, took it from being a pure celebrity title to being a mix of celebrity and lifestyle for young girls. It was purely that we couldn’t get the sales.’ Unpromoted, Big’s circulation dropped as low as 60,000.
