Charlotte succeeds Paul McGuinness who has recently been announced as the new editor for BBC Wildlife Magazine.
Charlotte Hodgman has a degree in history from the University of Warwick during which time she spent several months in Venice studying the history of the Renaissance. Charlotte joined BBC History Magazine in 2010, and in 2015 became the magazine’s Deputy Editor, commissioning and writing high-quality content and producing special editions on behalf of the magazine, says Immediate Media.
Outside work, Charlotte’s love of history means she can often be found at a museum or historical site, introducing her young son to the wonders of the past – from dinosaurs to ancient Egypt.
Charlotte comments, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be taking the helm at History Revealed – a magazine that’s continued to entertain and inform readers since its launch in 2014. My love of history began in childhood and has continued through a history degree and an eight-year career with BBC History Magazine – so taking on the role of editor on History Revealed is a dream come true. I can’t wait to take the magazine into the next stage of its development and finding new, exciting ways to engage readers with the stories of the past.”
Dave Musgrove, Content Director for Knowledge at Immediate Media added, “Charlie has been on BBC History Magazine, as features editor, and then deputy editor, since 2013. She has demonstrated very sure editorial judgement, and an excellent eye for a strong historical story, in her time with BBC History Magazine. I’m very confident that she will be able to steer History Revealed in an exciting direction on the next stage of its journey”
Launched in 2014, History Revealed aims to bring the past to life for everyone. It is, say the publishers, “an action-packed, image-rich brand with zero stuffiness, jam-packed with facts, features and historical fun”.
In June, History Revealed will become BBC History Revealed, joining BBC History Magazine and BBC World Histories Magazine in Immediate’s portfolio of history titles. It will also become part of historyextra.com, providing a new strand of popular global history to the site.
