THE UK’s best selling carp magazine, Total Carp, has banked a new editor, in the shape of Marc Coulson, after internal reorganisation at owner DHP Ltd.

The move comes as a result of current editor Jim Foster being appointed as DHP’s new editor-in-chief, taking control of the firm’s portfolio of magazines and ensuring their high standards continue.

Marc was previously the editorial assistant on DHP’s successful Advanced Carp Fishing but his hard work and commitment have earned him the opportunity to move up and take on the editor’s chair at Total Carp.

The search is currently on for a successor to Marc on Advanced Carp Fishing to assist its editor, Martin Ford.

Marc, a former golf professional who joined DHP around 18 months ago, said: “I am delighted to be taking over as editor and look forward to the challenge of following in Jim’s footsteps and continuing to drive Total Carp forward.

“There can be few more rewarding roles for an angler than a job in angling journalism with the chance to contribute to the sport we love. To be at the helm of the UK’s biggest-selling dedicated carp fishing title will be quite a challenge but, along with editorial assistant Jon Bones, I am looking forward to it.”

Meanwhile, outgoing editor Jim Foster added: “I’m delighted to be handing over the reins to Marc. Having worked closely with him for the last 18 months, I know how good he is at his job! I can assure the trade that the editorship of the UK’s biggest-selling carp magazine is going to be in good hands.

“It will be a little strange not to be an editor at DHP anymore – having held that position since 1997. However, I am eagerly looking forward, through my new position as editor-in-chief, to managing all DHP’s consumer titles.

“I will do my utmost to ensure that the sales figures on all our magazines grow – and that the quality of editorial content will go from strength to strength in 2004 and beyond.”
