MANILA - Former MTV VJ and culture columnist Sarah Meier is the new editor-in-chief of fashion magazine Metro, publisher ABS-CBN has announced.

Meier will debut her first Metro issue as editor-in-chief in April.

Of the career milestone, Meier said: "What I am most excited about in joining the Metro team is that there is no other platform as unique and primed for growth and greatness in the Philippine fashion magazine arena.

"Our potential to make a significant impact in empowering women is massive — the undeniable assets that we possess within the ABS-CBN family, the unpretentious relationships we have in the fashion industry, and most importantly, a humble and hungry team that is head over (designer) heels in love with what they do."

A professional model since she was 14, Meier became an MTV VJ for Southeast Asia for six years until 2007. For a time, she was also the host of "Philippine Fashion Week TV" and "Super Model TV" on Studio 23.

In 2012, she completed a publishing course in Columbia University's School of Journalism. She also finished a short course on advertising in Duke University.

Currently, Meier maintains a weekly column in the Arts and Culture section of the Manila Bulletin. She is also the general manager and creative director of e-commerce site Pormada.com.
