HOT 100 2014: James Gurney and Tim Barber, QP


In the 1976 classic All the President’s Men, reporters Woodward and Bernstein (played by Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford) blow open the Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon.

QP magazine’s James Gurney and Tim Barber haven’t snagged a Pulitzer yet, but they do take inspiration from that famous piece of investigative journalism, as they show in their Hot 100 profile picture that recreates a classic still from the film.

It has been a dramatic year for QP magazine, and its exhibition SalonQP, which were brought by Telegraph Media Group at the end of 2013. This paved the way for a re-launch of the magazine in May. “I’m immensely proud of the result. It’s a brighter, more modern, more accessible magazine, but no less informative or authoritative,” says Tim, who joined the team in November last year.

With the backing of Telegraph Media Group, QP magazine and SalonQP are hoping for considerable growth this year. “We will keep developing both the magazine and SalonQP, and to grow the audience and impact of everything we do. And of course, we have very big plans for SalonQP in November,” promises James.
