W24, SA’s biggest lifestyle website for women, has a new editor – Zanele Kumalo. Prior to W24 Zanele was editor of the fashion weekly magazine Grazia.
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Zanele as W24 editor, she has been working with the W24 brand for a while and we have already learned to love her as a part of our team. She brings a wealth of media savvy and more than a generous dollop of inspirational personal style,” says Adele Hamilton, 24.com Managing Editor: Lifestyle.
As features writer and beauty editor for Marie Claire magazine and editor of Grazia, Zanele has extensive experience in talking and listening to South African women through both print and digital media. “I’ve been engaging with young women and talking to them about beauty, fashion and gender issues for almost 15 years now and I am thrilled to be kicking that up a notch at the helm of this, the biggest lifestyle digital publication for this audience group in SA,” says Zanele.
“I think our readers are going to fall in love with the brand all over again. We’re coming up with even more creative ways to keep them entertained and in the know. They can look forward to more local content and being part of a community that reflects their passions and interests,” she adds.
Zanele officially took on the W24 editor role on 1 September 2017.
