Josh Brooks is the newly-appointed editor-in-chief of Electronics Weekly and will replace industry veteran Richard Wilson. Richard, who has been with the publication for 29 years, will have a column in the print edition and will be helping the team with his editorial and engineering knowledge and expertise. He will continue to have an active role in organisin the annual Elektra awards.

Josh has been with Metropolis, the publisher of Electronics Weekly, for a number of years and transferred to the weekly electronics title in September 2014. Having previously worked as a business journalist in industries ranging from packaging and commercial printing to urban planning and marketing. Josh will continue in the role of publisher along side his new title.

Electronics Weekly has also announced a reduction from 40 issues per year to 22. This change comes as result of a renewed effort to focus on the calibre of the publication, with the goal of increasing pagination to a minimum of 32 per issue.

None of the changes announced for the editorial or print editions will affect the title’s online portfolio or approach to news-led editorial content. Long-standing editors Steve Bush, David Manners, and Alun Williams will continue to work with Josh, as well as the publication’s many existing contributors.
