Former AMI senior staff writer Colby Ramsey has returned to the brand as editor with immediate effect, replacing outgoing editor Murray Stassen. Stassen has joined another music industry publication as deputy editor.
Ramsey's previous role as senior staff writer for AMI saw him reporting to Stassen and former editor Adam Savage, having initially joined the brand in November 2015. This was followed by a six month stint at Future sister title TVBEurope as senior staff writer.
Ramsey completed an undergraduate degree in Multimedia Journalism in 2013.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back to working with the rest of the team at Future to continue the fantastic work that my previous editors have done at Audio Media International over the last few years,” said Ramsey.
He added: “With a well-established and dedicated team and with AMI so well-positioned to deliver great content, I’m confident that we will be able to build out the brand and maintain its position as the leading technology resource for the pro-audio end user."
"We're thrilled to welcome Colby back to AMI as its acting editor. Colby's passion for, and knowledge of, this market makes him a natural choice to lead AMI's next chapter, and he's been champing at the bit to get started and put his mark on the brand," said James McKeown, content director at AMI's parent company, Future.
"Colby will oversee all of AMI's content output and will work in tandem with Daniel Gumble, PSNEurope's editor, who will take on an additional role as group editor of Future's pro audio division. With Sahar Nazir also having recently joined PSNEurope as its new staff writer, both brands are in a strong position to continue to deliver the best independent coverage of the pro audio sector to our audiences."
Ramsey will report in to Future B2B content director James McKeown and will work closely with pro audio group editor and PSNEurope editor Daniel Gumble.
