Cycle News was a weekly motorcycle newspaper for more than 40 years until ceasing publication August 31, 2010. Since then it has covered the motorcycle industry and sport through its website cyclenews.com, which will continue to serve the industry and motorcycle enthusiasts under MAG’s guidance.
“Cycle News has a rich history and has always been there for both the industry and enthusiasts,” said MAG President & CEO Brian Etter. “Many of us grew up reading Cycle News, and its name has meant a tremendous amount to all of us who love the sport. We are committed to the Cycle News brand and to its readership, and we will work diligently to take it to the next level.”
In addition to acquiring the Cycle News brand, MAG also announced the hiring of Paul Carruthers to return to his position as Editor of Cycle News. Carruthers – who built a 25-year career at Cycle News, including management of all editorial content as its editor since 1994, left the publication in August before it ceased publication.
