TRVL, the Apple iPad Magazine, appoints Kieran Meeke as Editor-in-Chief

24 NOVEMBER 2011, UK, NL
Summary
Kieran Meeke joined TRVL as Editor-in-chief, after ten years as Features Editor of UK's Metro, the world's largest free newspaper.
 
TRVL iPad Magazine and its founders Jochem WIjnands and Michel Elings are proud to announce the appointment of Kieran Meeke, former Features Editor of London-based freesheet Metro, as Editor-in-Chief. Kieran will be in charge of content and editorial direction 

“My job combines three of my greatest passions: travel, technology and writing,” Kieran said.
Kieran has travelled to 100 countries and lived in Africa, Asia and Arabia. He worked in Northern Ireland and Southern Africa before moving to London where he joined Metro soon after it started. “Few of us who started with Metro expected it to grow into the world’s largest free newspaper,” he said. “I am excited to see how far TRVL goes in the next few years and believe its potential is enormous.”

 
TRVL was the first iPad exclusive magazine in the world, launched out of a spare bedroom by its founders, Michel Elings and Jochem Wijnands. It features a single destination each issue, with around 50 pages of top-quality photographs, video and a background article by a writer who knows it well. The New York Times said: "To read a TRVL article on the iPad is to be transported to that destination, with excellent photography and evocative storytelling."
