Kemp and Longworth exit from Cosmo

By Jonas Lopez in Media News on

Cosmopolitan logoKeshnee Kemp and Cassandra Longworth have stepped down from Cosmopolitan magazine.

Kemp, who was Cosmopolitan’s editor for a year, is set to become editor and content director at Pacific Magazines’ WHO. Pacific Magazines announced that she is slated to report for work on June 4, 2018.

“The opportunity to work on Who as both editor and content director was too hard to refuse. The brand has exciting plans for the future and I look forward to playing a key role in its growth and future direction,” said Kemp.

“Keshnee’s energy, drive, commercial nous and reputation for driving big ideas are well-renowned. We can’t wait to have her on board,” added current WHO and New Idea editorial director Emma Nolan, who will be Kemp’s immediate superior.

Longworth, meanwhile, left Cosmopolitan and Cosmopolitan Bride after three years as market editor to become a freelance fashion stylist.

Pacific Magazines’ management has yet to announce replacements for Kemp and Longworth.
