Television Business International (TBI) has hired C21 Media’s Richard Middleton as managing editor.
Middleton has spent the past seven years covering the global TV business, most recently as editor of C21Media’s flagship magazine C21 International – a role he took on two years ago having joined the company as a senior reporter in 2013.
Prior to that, he spent five years at BBC Online as a sub-editor and reporter, and before that, he worked for publishers including Trinity Mirror, Fairfax Media, The Independent, Reed Business and DMG Media.
Middleton, who joins on Monday (24 June), will work alongside Manori Ravindran, editor of TBI.
Ravindran said: “I’m so pleased to welcome Rich to TBI. With his top-notch reporting and global view on the industry, he is a terrific fit for us. Coming off the back of a major redesign, TBI has had a big year thus far, and I look forward to all that’s to come with Rich on board.”
Middleton said: “I can’t wait to get started at TBI and help the team continue its work in providing incisive, cutting-edge news and analysis of our rapidly changing industry.
“I’m relishing the chance to get involved with new projects and working with Manori to help make TBI an even more enticing destination for anyone looking for market-leading insights into the international TV business.”
