Steve Sutherland Becomes Hi-Fi Choice Editor

Hi-Fi Choice has announced Steve Sutherland's appointment as Editor.

StereoNET's friends over at Hi-Fi Choice, AVTech Media's hi-fi title, have told us that Lee Dunkley, the publication's current Editor, will step down after seven year's service with the March issue being his last in the post. The baton is then passed on to Steve Sutherland with the April issue becoming his Editorial debut at 'Choice.

Lee leaves behind a legacy of not only managing every aspect of Hi-Fi Choice's production but also developing the website and maintaining a consistently high standard, we're told.

Hi-Fi Choice New Editor

Steve Sutherland has quite the track record, too and will be a familiar name to anyone who followed the popular music press through the 80s and 90s. Steve was Melody Maker's Deputy Editor in the 1980s and Editor of NME from 1992-2000, aka the Britpop years.

Steve has also edited magazines as diverse as Vox and Now!, and spearheaded the launch of As IPC's Editorial Director until 2017, Steve worked on Country Life and Marie Claire, and with Time Warner New York on brands including Time and Sports Illustrated.

We look forward to catching up with Steve at the upcoming Bristol Hi-Fi Show 2020 and wish him all the best in his new role.
