The European newspaper is being resurrected as an online medium with

Jonathan Fenby, the former editor of The Observer, as

editor-in-chief.



The launch of European.com this summer will coincide with the launch of

a website for Sunday Business and a revamp of The Scotsman online.





The interactive TV service, Open, has signed Asda to provide an

interactive shopping service. The supermarket retailer will deliver to

Open customers initially within the M25 area when it joins this summer,

with plans to broaden the service by the end of the year.





Cabal Communications has ceased publishing the magazine Good Health,

which it bought from Jack Hay last year. The company has also

restructured, moving Sarah Bravo, editor of Good Homes, to help build

its internet projects division, and appointing Suzanne Imre in her

place. Mat Snow, editor of the older men’s lifestyle magazine which

launches this year, has been made editorial director of the male

lifestyle group.





News International has merged the sales teams for The Sun and News of

the World into one department, which will cross-sell both titles, and

promoted Richard Webb to general manager of News Group Newspapers. Webb,

who will continue in his role as ad director, fills the gap left by

Clive Milner, who became managing director of the group last autumn.





PlayStation World, Computec Media’s debut games title, will launch in

the UK this week. The launch issue, which has a print run of 300,000,

will feature a cover-mounted memory card and will be supported by a

pounds 1.5 million promotional spend. The monthly magazine will be

priced at pounds 2.99 and distributed by IPC Marketforce.





Gruner & Jahr has drawn up a shortlist of three agencies which will

pitch for the launch campaign of its new women’s glossy, codenamed

Florence, which will launch this spring. TBWA GGT Simons Palmer, Walsh

Trott Chick Smith and G&J’s incumbent agency, Arcom, will be involved in

the final pitch. A result is expected by the end of this month.





Fox Kids Europe has appointed Benoit Runel to the new position of

executive director of programming and acquisitions. Formerly the deputy

general manager and programming director at Fox Kids France, he will now

assume overall responsibility for the supervision of programming and

on-air productions.





John Mayhead has been appointed chairman of the Audit Bureau of

Circulations, succeeding Geoffrey Copeman of Eastern Counties Newspaper

Group. Mayhead has been a strategic marketing consultant since leaving

the board of Argos last year, and has also been chairman of the

Marketing Society, a council member of the Incorporated Society of

British Advertisers and its representative on the Advertising Authority

Council.





The Galaxy network has appointed two marketing managers. Sharon McKoy

will oversee advertising, promotions and events for Galaxy 102.2 in

Birmingham, and Gordon Hodgson will take on the same role at Galaxy 101.

McKoy comes from the troubled National Centre for Popular Music in

Sheffield, and Hodgson moves over from Galaxy 102.2.





Emap Digital Radio has won the local digital multiplex licence for

Liverpool, and aims to broadcast eight programme services in the area.

Among these, Emap’s own stations, Magic, Radio City and Kiss, will

broadcast, as well as Capital’s Xfm.
