ProPickup Changes Strengthen Reader Resources
January merger with Hard Working Trucks deepens vocational truck news to fleet owners while expanding pickup coverage
Ringing in the New Year brings a big change to ProPickup and ProPickupMag.Com.
ProPickup’s last printed/digital issue went out earlier this month as final preparations are being made for its merger with Hard Working Trucks (HWT) website on January 10. HWT is part of the Randall-Reilly Trucking Media Group.
“Bringing ProPickup onboard will strengthen our pickup coverage,” says HWT editor Jason Cannon of the merger.
“Likewise, ProPickup joining forces with HWT brings a lot of vocational truck news to those who frequented PP’s website. Now we’ll have truck coverage from pickups to vans to big rigs under one editorial roof.”
“This is exciting because anyone looking for news and information on the latest trucks and truck-related products will be able to find it at one location,” says Bruce Smith, founding editor of ProPickup.
“The heart of ProPickup’s editorial content will not change and it’ll be easy to find, ” says Smith who assumes the new role of HWT Senior Editor.
“We’ll be providing the same kinds of how-to articles, product reviews, new vehicle road tests, project builds, and show coverage as we’ve done for the past three years. But now we’ll be able to provide more of it with the larger staff resources HWT provides.”
Pickup coverage will be easy to find on the HWT website: Just click on the “Pickup Trucks” tab at the top of the home page.
