Fashion journalist steps up to become independent publisher’s group editor

Victoria McKennaA fashion journalist has been promoted to group editor of an independent regional publisher.

DTS Media has announced the appointment of Victoria McKenna, pictured, to the role.

Victoria has served as the company’s fashion and beauty editor for the past year and takes over from Charlotte Ruscoe, who has edited its titles for the past two years.

The Shropshire-based publisher runs magazines Oswestry Life, It’s Beautiful and Shropshire Family Voice.

Said Victoria: “I am delighted to be appointed as Editor although we are sad to see Charlotte go. I look forward to working much closer with the DTS Media team and to continuing the great legacy that Charlotte leaves.

“I have greatly enjoyed creating content for the magazines in my fashion and beauty role and feel I can bring more of my experience in to the new role.

“The magazines continue to be greatly received by the local communities and further afield which is encouraging and the aim being to provide local people with opportunity to read about their community.

“I especially look forward to meeting and working with businesses and people in the local area as this is something I enjoy.”

Victoria, 39, is originally from Oswestry and returned to the town two years ago, having launched her own online luxury fashion brand the previous year.
