Meredith Completes Acquisition of Every Day with Rachael Ray From Reader's Digest Association
"Chris has a strong and deep understanding of the Every Day with Rachael Ray brand, and we feel confident her knowledge and experience will help us continue to build it across multiple platforms and in the experiential marketplace," says Tom Witschi, EVP, Meredith National Media Group, who oversees the More, Fitness, Every Day with Rachael Ray, EatingWell and Diabetic Living brands.
"As I have said before, for me everything is about family, so I am very pleased that our magazine is now officially part of the Meredith family," said Rachael Ray. "And I am thrilled to be reuniting with Chris Guilfoyle, whom I adore. I'm confident Chris will elevate our magazine to new levels, while continuing to over deliver for our advertising partners. Finally, I need to congratulate all the teams who worked tirelessly to make sure this transition would be smooth for our customers who look forward to receiving the award-winning content our fantastic staff create each month."
Prior to joining More, Guilfoyle was the Publisher of Women's Wear Daily, where she was responsible for advertising for WWD and wwd.com.

During her tenure BHG secured spots on Adweek's "Hot List" and Advertising Age's "A-List." She began her publishing career with positions at People, TV Guide and Omni magazines.
