Time Out, the global media and leisure brand that helps people explore and experience the best of the city, announces Joe Mackertich as new Time Out London Editor and Jordan Waller as Head of Digital Content.
In his role as editor, Joe Mackertich will be central to further evolving Time Out London’s curated content, highly engaged audience and unique voice across all digital, print and social media channels. Time Out London is the number one weekly magazine in the city* and has been helping people go out better since 1968.
Joe is an award-winning editor most recently of ShortList where he helped earn its reputation for eye-catching visuals, a-list access and progressive values. Before that he ran Mr Hyde, the much-acclaimed daily email service.
As Head of Digital Content, Jordan Waller will run the overall strategy and implementation for Time Out’s digital content globally. Time Out’s curated content covers the best food, drink, culture, entertainment and travel across 327 cities in 58 countries; in the first half of 2019, the company’s global brand audience has grown to a monthly average of 57 million.
Jordan’s extensive editorial experience spans digital, print and content marketing. He joins Time Out from The Independent where he was editor of their viral news and politics website indy100. Prior to that he oversaw ShortList.com as executive editor where he was responsible for online editorial, social, email and video output.
Caroline McGinn, Time Out’s Global Editor-in-Chief, commented: “I am delighted that Joe and Jordan are joining Time Out. I couldn't be more proud of our network of local, expert writers, photographers and videographers, who get under the skin of the city and its culture, spotting fun, freshness, beauty, authenticity and originality - often in surprising places, and often before the rest of the world does. As a lifetime Londoner, Joe brings an intrinsic knowledge and love for the city which Time Out was born in, back in 1968. As a brilliant and experienced digital lead, Jordan will help Time Out's 327 cities capitalise on their growing digital audience, trusted expertise and phenomenal local talent. In 2019 we diversified our business and turned our editors' curation not only into magazines and digital products but also Time Out Markets which bring the best chefs and cultural experiences of the city under one roof. I look forward to seeing Joe and Jordan take Time Out from strength to strength.”
