Mediaweek promotes Brittney Rigby to editor

Mediaweek publisher Trent Thomas said: “Brittney has already made a huge impact in her short time at Mediaweek, so this promotion is incredibly well deserved.”

Mediaweek has promoted Brittney Rigby to editor. The seasoned industry journalist and editor will lead the editorial team, drive editorial growth for the publication, and ensure Mediaweek is the must-read record for those working across the media, marketing, and advertising industries.

Rigby joined the Mediaweek team in February as news and features editor. She has held leadership roles across newsrooms and agencies, including as head of communications at DDB Group Australia and deputy managing editor at Mumbrella.

She has written for industry titles including Campaign UK, Campaign Asia, and AdNews, and she freelances regularly for mastheads including The Guardian, The Sydney Morning Herald, and SBS. She is also qualified as a lawyer, and worked in law firms before joining the media and marketing industry.

“Brittney has already made a huge impact in her short time at Mediaweek, so this promotion is incredibly well deserved,” said Mediaweek publisher Trent Thomas. “She is a considered editor who knows the market and has a great news instinct. I’m looking forward to seeing how she’ll lead the team and shape the publication, as we continue to grow our brand, including our marketing and agency verticals.”

Rigby added: “I’ve spent the last couple of months reconnecting with the wider industry, building on Mediaweek’s momentum, and getting to know the team. They’re a great bunch and I can’t wait to see what we’ll achieve together as I step into the editor role.”

Rigby’s team is made up of Tess Connery, Alisha Buaya, Amy Shapiro, and Jasper Baumann.

She will report to Thomas, and work closely with the wider Mediaweek team, including chief growth director Ricky Chanana, general manager Sarah Chapman, chief revenue director Andrew Mulready, and Chattr editor Anita Annabel.
