Last week Dirt Rag’s Publisher Maurice Tierney and Karen Brooks, the former editor of Dirt Rag and the founding editor of our sister magazine Bicycle Times, mutually decided to part ways.
“I’m proud of the work I’ve done with both Bicycle Times and Dirt Rag, and am excited to go off in new directions,” Brooks said.
“We wish Karen all the best,” Tierney said. “We’re also really excited about the future of Bicycle Times.”
Rotating Mass Media, parent company of Bicycle Times and Dirt Rag magazines, is now looking to fill the position of Editor of Bicycle Times or Online Editor.
While Rotating Mass Media looks for the right candidate to take the helm at Bicycle Times, a transitional editorial team will be lead by Tierney, who will serve as Interim Editor. The transitional editorial team members include Stephen Haynes (Bicycle Times Art Director), Adam Newman (Online Editor), Eric McKeegan (Tech Editor), and Mike Cushionbury (Dirt Rag Editor). With Tierney’s guidance this team will produce the next two issues of Bicycle Times, after which a full-time Editor will be announced.
All general editorial inquiries should be directed to [email protected]. Technical and product editorial inquiries should be sent to McKeegan.
