Neil Fowler leaves Which? Magazine

Which? is advertising for a new editor for its magazine following the departure of Neil Fowler after two years in the job.

The monthly magazine run by the Consumer Association has around 500,000 subscribers and a popular subscription-based website.

Which? is an unusual title in that it carries no advertising – relying completely on subscription revenue.

Fowler, 52, has previously told Press Gazette that editing Which? is “one of the best jobs in journalism”.

He said: “I think in journalistic terms it’s as near to pure traditional journalism as there is. We don’t take advertising, we are not for profit and we sell purely on the basis of how good the magazine is.”

He told Press Gazette today that he plans to take a break from journalism and possibly do some consultancy work.

He said: “I’ve been editing for 23 years and I’m having a bit of break and seeing if those skills are transferable. Which? is doing really well, I’m leaving it at a time when the sales are doing well. I want to see what else is out there.”

Fowler has been at the helm of titles including the Lincolnshire Echo, the Derby Evening Mail, The Journal in Newcastle and the Cardiff-based Western Mail.

Before joining Which? he was publisher of the Toronto Sun in Canada.
