Archant to create shared content hub for magazine titles

Archant is planning to create a shared content hub for its portfolio of consumer magazine titles.

Under the proposals, each magazine would be expected to use 15 per cent of shared content from the hub, with editors having a say in what content they use and able to customise it to fit their local area.

Archant produces more than 70 magazine titles, including the monthly Resident and Life luxury lifestyle series, local wedding magazine series Bride as well as titles such as Airgun World and France Magazine.

Group editor of the London Resident titles Mark Kebble is expected to take on responsibility for running the new hub, which is expected to be operational by October with shared content appearing in January 2018 issues of the magazines.
