Entertainment and Lifestyle Journalist
Caryn Welby-Solomon is a South African-based lifestyle and entertainment journalist and pop culture enthusiast.
She has written content for various publications and companies. She is a film and television critic for Channel24, a columnist for Tagged Online, and a regular contributor for ASA Magazine, Screen Rant and others.
She was previously a staff writer at Cosmopolitan SA, a brand writer at News24's BrandStudio and a news writer at News24 Africa.
"Caryn is a pop culture fanatic and was an extremely valuable member of the Cosmopolitan team. Caryn is skilled in writing for SEO as well as social media management. She produced the bulk of our celebrity content for the website, managed our weekly newsletters and doubled our page views to the celebrity vertical in under a year. I can definitely recommend Caryn as a skilled journalist in the entertainment field and say that she is tapped-in to the cultural zeitgeist and what’s hot to cover."
- Holly Meadows, former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan SA
"Though Caryn comes from a digital background first, she always wanted to write for magazines and this combination is unusual and valuable. Good writers, who often gravitate to magazines, are wise as well as skilled. Good writing never dies, it gets quoted, noted and passed on and Caryn’s content falls into that category. This is how she doubled Cosmopolitan’s page views in under a year."
- Jane Raphaely, Chairman of Associated Media Publishing
"Caryn joined the BrandStudio on some great recommendations from the 24.com African team. She didn’t disappoint. During 2+ years of aggressive business growth, she was a rock. Her quiet but confident nature played a massive role in the success of the business. Her commitment to deliver quality, regardless of tight (often unreasonable) deadlines is a testament to her personality and commitment to challenge herself and grow. She is someone I trusted, always. She has a bright future, any team will benefit from having her – trust me, we did. I was also inspired and impressed her commitment to help other in her communities – without expecting anything in return."
- Myles Brown, former Head of BrandStudio.24
