Time Out, the weekly London listings magazine, is to announce a raft of changes to editorial content next month.
Although it is keeping the initiatives under wraps, they will involve extra features pages and new regular columns at the front of the book. There will also be a redesign, described as 'freshening up and tightening up', in addition to the increase in the title's TV coverage (PRWeek, 19 January).
Time Out is also increasing headcount as it responds to potential rivals such as the just-launched A5 magazine and website, london.co.uk.
Former features editor Chris Hemblade will become deputy editor, a position which has been vacant for some time. Hemblade was made acting editor during Laura Lee Davies' maternity leave. She returns as editor on 12 February.
Hemblade was replaced as features editor by Jessica Cargill Thompson, who will stay on in the role.
Time Out has an ABC of 90,400.
