Fitness Business News Names John Craig as Editor

YARMOUTH, ME -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 18, 2006 -- Fitness Business News, a national newspaper covering the fitness industry, has named John Craig as editor.

Craig, 43, joins Fitness Business News after nine years at The Boston Globe, where he served as a news editor, writer, and podcaster. Previously, Craig was a news editor at The Portsmouth (N.H.) Herald and a sports producer at New England Cable News.

Fitness Business News, a monthly that debuts in March at the 2007 IHRSA show in San Francisco, will be dedicated to industry growth.
