Editorial Asia Pacific Media Educator 28(2) vii–viii © 2018 University of Wollongong, Australia SAGE Publications sagepub.in/home.nav DOI: 10.1177/1326365X18823390 http://journals.sagepub.com/home/ame Hello. This is my last issue as editor-in-chief of Asia Pacific Media Educator. I retired as an academic 12 months ago and believe it is now time to pass the baton to another person who will continue to drive the development of APME as a journal for and by Journalism educators. The new editor-in-chief is Dr Sundeep Muppidi, Professor of Communication at the University of Hartford in the US. Professor Muppidi is a passionate Journalism educator. As a teacher he has taught a range of subjects that form the core of journalism programs. His commitment to Journalism education was highlighted recently when he won the prestigious American Council of Education (ACE) Fellowship for 2017–18. During his career he has won a number of other fellowships, also serving as Secretary General of Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC). Professor Muppidi is a researcher of note, having three edited books, 50 book chapters and refereed articles, 10 book reviews and more than 75 refereed conference presentations to his credit. I am sure that under his stewardship, APME is in safe hands.
