New publisher takes over regional TopGear ops

Before I begin, I Jeff Lim's a LOYAL TopGear Magazine reader.  Having missing only 1 issue (Issue 16) since its inception back in 2006.  Can't you believe it?

I always look forward to New Top Gear Malaysia issues every end of the month at Newsstand, I can't subscribe because I have no Credit Card.  I LOVED most of the articles to bits.  

Top Gear Malaysia WAS the BEST MALAYSIAN Motoring Magazine until MNM (MNM = Motor News Malaysia) and S4M Magazines came along, both brought to you by the Guys from NST Cars  Bikes and Trucks (CBT).

Here's hoping they don't change OR little change to the Magazine.  Wishing new OTR Multimedia ALL the BEST in Managing the Magazine.

Without further ado, here's the Press release of this news:

New publisher takes over regional TopGear ops

KUALA LUMPUR: Operations of TopGear Magazine in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia are being overhauled, with the website now under the same management.

The April issue of the magazine, scheduled to hit newsstands in March,  will be the first under Big Road Media Pte Ltd, which has been awarded the licence by BBC Worldwide to publish the motoring magazine.

Big Road Media is planning to launch the Indonesian edition by the end of 2012. 

In tandem with the changes, the company has appointed Louis Foo as a consultant to oversee the magazine's activities in the three territories.

Foo was previoulsy Measat Publications Sdn Bhd vice-president and he helped start the magazine in Malaysia and Singapore five years ago.

“I’m very excited to be coming onboard for this project, having worked on TopGear Magazine from its inception," said Foo.

Big Road Media has appointed OTR Multimedia to run its Malaysian operations and Big Bang Media Pte Ltd as its publishing partner in Singapore. The Indonesia partners will be announced soon.

OTR Multimedia is a member of the OTR group of companies, which also publishes the On The Road motoring classifieds magazine.

BBC Worldwide licenses TopGear Magazine globally with localised versions for such countries as the Philippines, South Korea, Russia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Thailand and India as well.
