MEDIA: Ministry fashion editor a casualty in group lay-offs

Ministry magazine has made fashion editor Ben Cook redundant as

part of 16 job cuts across the Ministry of Sound group.



David Fowler, operations director for the group's media division, which

comprises the magazine, website and digital radio, said 20 editorial

staff remained.



Cook's remit will be taken up by Ministry editor Ollie Quain and a

freelance, Fowler said. Magazine staff have produced all online content

for the past year.



'We could not, realistically, have cut any further. We would have

affected our ability to get the product out. We are pretty streamlined,'

Fowler added.



There would be no more 'restructuring' in the short term, he

insisted.



'But it would be foolish to say it is not going to happen (in the

future). Given the current climate, it is the best thing for the

business in the long-term.'



Ministry of Sound has three divisions: media, corporate and recordings.
