FOUNDER of the INQ, Mike Magee, is to leave the magazine at the end of February.
He started the mag in April 2001, shortly after a fall out with the Rogister, which he co-founded.
News ed Paul Hales will become editor of the INQ after Mageek goes.
Mageek said: “I really do owe the readers of the INQUIRER and those who supported me when I started it an apology, sorry really big vote of thanks. I’ve enjoyed every day I’ve worked on the INQUIRER apart from the day I had a triple bypass op.
"I also want to thank the loyal bunch of hacks who’ve helped turn the mag into the success story it became.” [Who they? Ed.]
So is the Mageek going to retire? “It’s not time for me to hang up my boots yet,” he said, enigmatically, as if he owned a pair of boots.
He’s believed to be involved in a future project based in foreign climes, but is being uncharacteristically coy about what he’s doing. µ
