BATH, United Kingdom (BRAIN)—Cyclingnews.com has appointed Laura Weislo (pictured) U.S. regional editor, while Greg Johnson becomes Australian regional editor.
In these newly created roles both Weislo and Johnson will coordinate U.S. and Australian racing coverage and work directly with Cyclingnews.com’s senior editorial team in the UK, while working closely with their vast army of contributors.
"Both Laura and Greg have been fundamental members of the team over the last few years," said Daniel Benson, manager editor for Cyclingnews.com. "These new roles emphasize both their growing responsibilities and our commitment to providing our readers with the world’s best cycling coverage. Despite a challenging market we're proud to be leading the way in expanding our ability to produce the best cycling news.”
“I've really enjoyed the past three years with Cyclingnews and am honored that Daniel has placed such faith in me to name me as regional editor," Weislo said. "I'm looking forward to another successful season with our excellent U.S. staff and contributors.”
“The creation of a new position within Future’s Australian office is indicative of the company’s commitment to the sport of cycling within this region," Johnson said. "Cycling in Australia has undergone immense growth in recent years, in no small part due to our riders’ success at races like the Tour de France and the various International Cycling Union World Championships. I look forward to working with those in the Australian industry to increase the exposure of our domestic races, and the next generation of talented Australian cyclists, to our international audience.”
