Powersport Media has announced the acquisition of Cycle News in a purchase agreement with Motorcycle Aftermarket Group (MAG) in which all staff, properties, editorial and sales efforts remain intact and ongoing.
Powersport Media LLC was founded by Sean Finley, Bryan Robb and Jesse Ziegler to take over ownership of Cycle News. These three industry professionals have vast experience in publishing, digital media and editorial content and look forward to working with the Cycle News team to expand on the potential for the brand. Digital Throttle, which has been contracted by MAG to manage the advertising sales operations for Cycle News for the last five years will continue to serve that role.
The Cycle News website and weekly digital magazine content will continue to be managed by Editor, Kit Palmer, Road Test Editor, Rennie Scaysbrook, and Art Director, Sunny Kwon. The website was re-launched in November.
