NEWS Publishing Group: Euke Frank Appointed New Editor-in-Chief of WOMAN in Austria

Hamburg, 18 January 2006 –

Austria´s biggest and most popular women´s magazine has a new editor-in-chief. Euke Frank, 38, a member of the WOMAN senior editorial team, is now taking on the sole responsibility for the magazine. She succeeds Uschi Fellner, who is leaving the News publishing group of her own accord. Euke Frank joined the News publishing group in 1993 following a traineeship at Austria´s PROFIL magazine, and went on to hold various executive positions. She was part of the team that developed WOMAN in Austria and has been part of the senior editorial team since the magazine was established in 2001.

Oliver Voigt, Chairman of the News publishing group´s board of directors, commented: "As a mother of two and dyed-in-the-wool journalist, Euke Frank is the perfect ´WOMAN woman.´ She is the right woman to lead the magazine into a new era, and is taking over an excellently-run and exceedingly successful magazine from Uschi Fellner. I thank Uschi Fellner for her excellent work which made possible WOMAN´s brilliant performance, and wish her all the best for her personal and professional future. Euke Frank and her outstanding team will enhance the proven elements in WOMAN´s success by adding new elements."
