Good Weekend poaches AFR’s editor Katrina Strickland

By Selim Unutmaz in Media News on
Good weekend has taken on a new editor with Katrina Strickland shifting across from AFR magazine.

A note to staff this Tuesday saw The Age editor Alex Lavelle and The Sydney Morning Herald editor Lisa Davies praising Strickland on her successful candidacy.

“Katrina was the stand-out candidate, exhibiting passion and enthusiasm for long-form journalism, and the magazine’s editorial and commercial potential,” wrote Lavelle and Davies.

“A breadth and depth of ideas was backed by a strong vision for both the printed product and its content online.”

The former Australian Financial Review editor will be replacing Amelia Lester, whose overseas move sparked the availability of the role.

Her previous experience includes the roles of deputy editor at AFR magazine, arts editor at The AFR, and senior arts writer as well as arts editor of The Australian newspaper.
