Editor Vesna Petropoulos says: “It’s been a wonderfully rewarding experience to be involved with this iconic brand. TV SOAP
magazine has been such a big part of my life since I became Editor in 2001. I’ve seen TV entertainment magazines come and go, but TV SOAP is the original soap publication and is still the top-selling magazine in its category. TV SOAP has a loyal readership; some readers have been with the magazine from the first issue! They know they can depend on TV SOAP to bring them the most up-to-date and accurate information on their favourite soaps and dramas.”
