The staff fallout from defunct music title Melody Maker has
continued at publisher IPC with the appointment of Mark Sutherland as
deputy editor of men's magazine Later.
Sutherland had been editor of the music weekly, which was closed at the
end of last year.
The move at least brings an end to the three-month hiatus at Later
following Sam Delaney's departure from the 77,000-circulation monthly in
November last year.
Simon Lewis has been promoted from staff writer to the new position of
features editor. Both he and Sutherland will report to editor Phil
Later is published by IPC ignite!, the new branding for IPC Music &
Sport. Sutherland was features editor of NME from 1996 to 1997 and
joined IPC from emap's Smash Hits in 1995.
