Paul McLane has been promoted to Editor in Chief of Radio World's U.S. publications by IMAS Publishing (USA) Inc. The announcement was made by Publisher Carmel King.
"This reflects growth at IMAS that has occurred over several years" in U.S. radio offerings, "the most recent of which is the addition of our Radio World Engineering Extra," King said.
"Paul now is responsible not just for the editorial content of 26 issues of Radio World, a position he continues to hold," King said, "but also six annual issues of the new Engineering Extra, overseeing and working with new Technical Editor Michael LeClair; plus the content of RW Online; our weekly RW Newsbytes e-mail newsletter; and the annual RW Sourcebook & Directory.
"Paul also contributes substantially to several special supplements and other IMAS projects including The NAB Daily News, and has hosted in our series of online Webinars."
McLane joined IMAS in 1996 as managing editor of Radio World and was promoted to editor in 1998. He oversees several editors and a large pool of free-lance columnists and writers producing more than 1,000 articles and news items a year.
"I hear from readers all the time that there has never been a more exciting technical time to be in radio, thanks to digital, multi-channel and the onset of new media," McLane said. "It's gratifying to see these trends played out in the pages of Radio World and our related offerings."
McLane's background is unique in the radio broadcast trade industry; he has experience both as a trained, award-winning journalist, and as a sales and marketing executive for radio broadcast equipment suppliers. He also has edited three books and is active as an actor in Washington's professional theater community.
