Alexandra Early is the editor of Time Out North America’s Time Out New York Kids, both in print and online. She also collaborates with Time Out’s sales and creative solutions teams to craft innovative branded content campaigns. This rising star’s multi-platform skills makes her a utility player to boot.
As editor for the print product, Early manages concept creation, production, layout, budget, and editorial and freelance staff. She led a major design and editorial overhaul of the magazine in 2015, and her efforts have transformed Time Out New York Kids from a merely functional lifestyle publication to an exciting read full of voice and newfound creativity—so much so that the company opted to increase the number of issues per year from four to six in 2016.
Under her guidance, the Time Out New York Kids website has also seen unprecedented digital growth. The online property is now edging toward one million visits per month. She closed 2016 with the highest-trafficked month ever thanks to her mix of engaging features and SEO-friendly, of-the-moment blog posts. She has a clear knack for knowing what will perform well online.
Before joining Time Out, Early was the editor for Haute Living, Inc.’s HauteResidence.com and social media editor for Danosky & Associates.
