CyclingNews.com is to be bolstered with the appointment of two new staff, each at opposite ends of the globe. In the US, Laura Weislo has been appointed regional editor, while Greg Johnson becomes Australian regional editor.
In these newly created roles both Weislo and Johnson will coordinate the very best US and Australian racing coverage and work directly with Cyclingnews.com’s senior editorial team in the UK.
Commenting on the appointments, Cyclingnews.com’s managing editor Daniel Benson said: “Both Laura and Greg have been fundamental members of the team over the last few years.
“These new roles emphasise 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.”
Of her appointment, Laura Weislo said: “I’ve really enjoyed the past three years with Cyclingnews and am honoured that Daniel has placed such faith in me to name me as regional editor. I’m looking forward to another successful season with our excellent United States staff and contributors.”
Greg Johnson added: “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.
“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 cycle industry to increase the exposure of our domestic races, and the next generation of talented Australian cyclists, to our international audience.”
