Media: Line-up changes at dance mags

Stephen Worthy has replaced Chris Elwell-Sutton as deputy editor at Ministry of Sound's monthly dance and club culture magazine, Ministry.

Stephen Worthy has replaced Chris Elwell-Sutton as deputy editor at Ministry of Sound's monthly dance and club culture magazine, Ministry.

Previously senior production editor on the 95,000 circulation title, he has also worked on Mixmag and Hip Hop Connection. His responsibilities include assisting editor Scott Manson with features and assessing editorial direction.

Elwell-Sutton, meanwhile, becomes editor of rival IPC Music and Sport's Muzik next week, where he replaces Dave Fowler.

Fowler, who left Muzik to become Ministry of Sound's head of digital content, is boosting his on-line editorial team. The newly-launched 24-hour music station, available over the internet and on digital radio in London, has been successful in driving traffic to the site, he said.

'I have repositioned the site with live audio at its core,' he explained.

'People who are into dance like live audio - a lot of other sites are like digital magazines with video.'

At Muzik, Elwell-Sutton has been specifically tasked with growing the 40,000 circulation. He said there would be a free CD with every issue because 'that's what has helped Ministry and Mixmag pull away from Muzik in the past'.

In addition, the magazine aims to broaden its appeal to 'people who are more casual listeners to dance music,' he said.
