Keeley Rodgers%2C new Group Leisure %26 Travel editor

Keeley Rodgers has been appointed editor of Group Leisure & Travel magazine, along with its portfolio of print and online media.

After a successful period as news editor and then editor for LSN Media in Bedford, Keeley has spent the last four years as assistant editor of the Oxford Mail and Oxford Times newspapers.

On her appointment, Keeley said: “I'm delighted to be joining Yandell Media and look forward to building on the success of its well-established publications. The last few years in Oxford have been an incredible adventure but the lure of making a difference in the growing field of travel magazines and websites was just too compelling.

“I have heard great things about the team, the products and of course the many readers and customers, and can't wait to be a part of it. With a passion for travel I will be bringing my enthusiasm and experience in journalism to the role and I'm very excited about the times ahead.”

Keeley joins at an exciting time for the magazine; the June edition brings with it a new name, a fresh design layout, and improved content.

Publisher of Group Leisure & Travel, Rob Yandell commented: “Keeley was appointed some time ago and we’re really looking forward to her joining the team and bringing her wealth of experience and new ideas to the magazine. I am confident we have found an editor who can not only retain our status as the leading magazine in its field, but further improve it for the benefit of both readers and advertisers.”

She joins the title on 5th June and takes up the reins from Sarah Holt who left the publication in March to fulfill some extensive worldwide travel ambitions.
