David Kirk

David Kirk's career began at London-based Miles Henslow Publications where he joined the staff of the monthly magazine Tape Recorder. Promoted to editor in 1970, he developed the publication into the pioneering audio industry journal Studio Sound.

In 1974 he founded and edited Video & Audio Visual Review which he developed over a 10-year period into Broadcast Systems Engineering. He was also active in establishing an associated exhibition (Video Tradex) and managing its conference.

In 1986 he was recruited by Argus Business Press to edit the journal International Broadcast Engineer (IBE). During this period he also created and supervised IBEx, one of the world's first online broadcast industry news-webs.

After nearly 14 years at IBE, he left Argus and in January 2000 established Stylus as a broadcast-specific technical authoring and public relations service. With clients across America, Europe and Asia, Stylus is now one of the most highly respected organisations in its field.
