Zamantungwa Khumalo joins the M&G as supplements and special projects editor
The Mail & Guardian is proud to announce the appointment of Zamantungwa Khumalo as its supplements and special projects editor.
Khumalo will be responsible for heading up the team that develops M&G supplements and sponsored content, including flagship projects such as 200 Young South Africans, Greening the Future and The Book of Women.
“I’m excited about joining the M&G and being part of the stellar team that has brought us compelling news and analysis for years,” Khumalo said.
The M&G’s editor-in-chief, Khadija Patel, said Khumalo would drive the strategic direction of supplements and special projects, which are critical to the sustainability of the M&G.
“We have exciting plans to further develop the supplements and special projects division, and Zamantungwa is ideally suited to overseeing that development,” she said.
Khumalo was the station executive producer at Power FM, where she was responsible for leading a group of producers and providing editorial direction on the 24-hour talk radio station. She is a global shaper with the World Economic Forum.
Her appointment follows the appointment of Franny Rabkin as news editor in January.
Rabkin is a distinguished legal reporter, whose influence on the newspaper is already being felt, Patel said.
“Both these appointments demonstrate the commitment of the M&G to quality journalism - journalism that is driven by a culture of innovation and underpinned by accuracy, accountability and the trust of our readers,” Patel said.
