Destinations of the World News appoints new Deputy Editor

Luxury travel magazine, Destinations of the World News, has appointed Laurel Munshower to the role of Deputy Editor. With experience in the region’s media and PR industry, Laurel previously worked with ITP Media Group’s travel publication, Conde Nast Traveller Middle East as a part of the editorial launch team, before joining Destinations of the World News from 2015 – 2016 as Features Writer and most recently working with TCApr as PR Executive. In her new role, she will aid in the editorial duties of both the magazine and the website by focusing on exceptional and aspirational luxury, travel and lifestyle experiences as well as news.

“Travel and writing have long been dual passions of mine and I could not be happier to return to the world of travel journalism,” says Laurel Munshower. “Having previously worked with Destinations of the World News, I am excited to continue my relationship with the magazine, now in its incredible tenth year and share the most fantastic and unexpected destination and hospitality experiences to inspire our jet-set readers.”

Steven Bond to step down at

Steven Bond will leave and Mediaquest this week to take up a new role of News Editor at Destinations of the World News. Having worked at for two years and Mediaquest since June, when it acquired the news and information portal, Steven steps down on Thursday and will commence his new role in the New Year. Steven will be responsible for the daily news content online and taking charge of the monthly magazine’s news content.

“I’m leaving business reporting with some (very slight) reluctance, but it’s a magical world and I’m increasingly drawn to people and places over dollars and cents,” says Steven. “I’m thrilled to be joining Destinations of the World News – there’s lots in store for 2014 both for online and print.”
