Karen Schärer, editor-in-chief of Wir Eltern since 2014, has decided to leave the magazine at the end of March 2022. Over the past seven years, Schärer has personally shaped and significantly developed the nearly century-old parenting magazine, CH Media writes in a statement. She has ensured that the special interest magazine has always had its finger on the pulse, both in terms of content and appearance - including in the digital realm.
Karen Schärer now wants to reorient herself and take on a new challenge in the future. Planning for Karen Schärer's successor will begin in the next few weeks, according to CH Media.
"With her empathy as well as her great expertise and broad experience, Karen Schärer has played a major role in shaping the positioning of Wir Eltern over the past seven years. With a great deal of creativity and passion for topics that concern mothers and fathers in our time, she has created a high-profile family magazine," Michael Sprecher, Head of Magazine Publishing at CH Media, was quoted as saying.
