Hot Hack #003: Kelly Dyer

Apparently, World Pipelines magazine has a circulation of over 10,000. But unless you're in the Oil and Gas industry, you've probably not even heard of it, let alone read it. With features spanning the wonders of Inspection Pigging and Cathodic Protection, one wouldn't expect the editorial content of the nation's leading pipeline mag to be managed by anyone other than a man with a beard, a pipe, and a degree in advanced fuel transportation physics from Imperial College.

Kelly Dyer has none of these things - and isn't a man. What's more, she's rather easy on the eye as it turns out. According to a recent Featuresexec profile, Kelly worked her way up through the ranks at Palladian (stablemates include World Cement and Hydrocarbon Engineering), where her editorship comes with the bonus of puppy dog eyes are enough to burst valves in pipelines across the world. If there's a pipe being lain, Kelly's probably there taking note.... now, where's my shovel?

Hot Hack #002: Lisa Campbell

Who said trade journalism isn't just oozing with fabulousness? For those who think that the consumer media is bringing sexy back, think again. Earlier this year, Broadcast magazine acquired its very own minx of an editor - Lisa Campbell. With a background firmly in media and marketing reporting, Lisa's CV spans PR Week, Campaign, and Marketing before moving east from Hammersmith to a position as Deputy Editor of Broadcast in 2003.

She's now taken on the top role, with her own weekly editorial column which is the perfect opportunity to have a cheeky glance at that wonderful headshot and claim that you're involved in some in-depth media analysis

Hot Hack #001: Wersha Bharadwa

You've seen her numerous Response Source emails for Cosmo and Glamour; if you're not Asian, you've probably spent a while working out how to pronounce her name properly; if you were lucky, you'll have read her great piece in yesterday's G2 on how to blag your way into Bollywood. Now ladies and gents, I give you the first journalist to grace the "pages" of THHB - Wersha Bharadwa.

Most people wouldn't get away with the red carpet stunts that Wersha describes in her feature, but she manages to pull it off, due mainly to the fact that she's gorgeous. Describing herself as an experienced and versatile journalist on her Freelance Writers' Database entry, Wersha writes on anything from health, homes, relationships, celebs and entertainment, to real life stories.
