MEDIA: Evening Standard relaunches its Hot Tickets magazine

Evening Standard, the weekday newspaper for London, last week

relaunched its entertainment magazine, Hot Tickets.



The weekly magazine's editor, Mark Booker, said the new-look Thursday

guide had upped its editorial quotient with an emphasis on clubbing and

music: 'The idea was to make the title slightly younger,' he said.



The magazine's core audience is 25 to 35-year-olds, Booker added.



Material from Standard critics has been given more emphasis, and deputy

editor Steve Morrisey is now in charge of features.



The changes were the result of market research commissioned by parent

company Associated Newspapers. 'We wanted to know better how people used

TV listings.



Some readers believed there wasn't much editorial in there,' Booker

said.



Hot Tickets has also completed a deal with the ticketing service of

Associated's thisislondon.co.uk website.
