Bauer Media has appointed Keshnee Kemp as editor of Cosmopolitan. She takes up the role on April 10.
Kemp takes the editor’s chair after a period of consulting with publishers and advertisers, including with Bauer and Pacific Magazines, on digital and audience strategies. Prior to that she was executive editor of Famous for almost two years and has held senior roles at Nine including chief-of-staff of the live television program Mornings (now rebranded Today Extra). Kemp makes a return to Bauer having previously worked as senior writer for NW magazine.
Nick Chan, CEO of Bauer Media, said: “Keshnee’s passion for breaking news, pop culture, fashion, politics and the issues that matter to women, combined with her knowledge of engaging audiences across media channels, make her ideally suited to lead Cosmopolitan.”
