Lisa Delaney has been named editor in chief of Spry, the largest health magazine launch in history scheduled for September with 9 million circulation. Former executive editor of Health and senior editor of Cooking Light and Prevention, she brings more than 15 years of health expertise to the magazine. She is author of the book, Secrets of a Former Fat Girl: How to Lose Two, Four (or More!) Dress Sizes -- and Find Yourself Along the Way.
Spry is the latest record-setting magazine launch for Publishing Group of America, which was purchased in December by Bain Capital Partners and Shamrock Partners. With a theme of balance -- "Celebrating the vitality in all of us" - - Spry will speak to boomers living active lives while often balancing the health needs of both their parents and their kids. Delaney will oversee all brand platforms, including online, clubs, e-newsletters, books, events and other extensions.
