Jake Challenor Steps Down From TMN, Variety Australia
But he will remain print editor of the quarterly Rolling Stone AU/NZ magazine with The Brag Media’s editor-in-chief, Poppy Reid.
“It’s been just over a year since I sold TMN to The Brag Media, a company full of insanely talented good humans doing great things, I’ve loved every minute of it,” he said
He cited rebuilding TMN over the last half-decade and launching Variety in Australia as career highlights.
Under his helm, TMN refocused its content and gave a voice to those executives (emerging and established) creating future strategies for the Australian and global music industries – something which he plans to do with his next venture.
Coming from a background in media, marketing and entertainment, Challenor also was the publisher of Radio Today which he sold to AMT in 2021.
