Uncooked Media's new appointments

360 GAMER appoints an Online Editor and a new Deputy Editor

07/11/06 - Uncooked Media announced today that it is securing the future for its newly launched www.360-gamer.com with the promotion of Jay Filmer to Online Editor and the hiring of Ian Collen as Xbox 360 GAMER magazine's new Deputy Editor.

Jay has been the Deputy Editor on Xbox 360 GAMER magazine since April and has been largely responsible for the creation of the games database that serves as the backbone to the 360 GAMER website. Prior to this, Jay's significant web-based experience includes stints as News Editor on GamesRadar and Assistant Editor on retailer GAME's UK website.

On Jay's promotion, Stu Taylor, Group Editor, Uncooked Media said:

"Jay has been a key asset in securing 360 GAMER magazine's future, allowing us to grow the magazine and, more importantly, to give the brand an unrivalled online presence. Through daily updates and exclusive content, www.360-gamer.com will be the one-stop portal for Xbox 360 gamers."

Ian replaces Jay as Deputy Editor on 360 GAMER magazine after contributing to the magazine on a freelance basis. Prior to this, Ian was Games Editor on Highbury's market-leading Xbox title, XBM.

Commenting on Ian's appointment, Stu Taylor said:

"The addition of Ian to the team caps off a fantastic third year in magazine publishing for Uncooked Media. His personality, enthusiasm and knowledge made him the ideal candidate to slip into Jay's shoes and take 360 GAMER magazine into 2007 and beyond."

Both Jay and Ian will work closely with Group Editor, Stu Taylor, to ensure the continued growth of Xbox 360 GAMER magazine and www.360-gamer.com. As well as being the main point of contact for game publishers wishing to see their products reviewed, Ian will work alongside News Editor, Rob Burman, to oversee the magazine in Stu's absence.

Xbox 360 GAMER was launched by Uncooked Media in October 2005, and is the only UK Xbox 360 magazine published every three weeks. It also offers unbeatable value with a standard retail price of £2.99 for 132 pages, and is available through the likes of WHSmith, HMV, Gamestation, Borders and newsagents. Xbox 360 GAMER is a member of the Audit Bureau of Circulations.
