Motorcyclist Hires Marc Cook as EIC

Marc Cook was appointed the new editor-in-chief of Motorcyclist, the El Segundo based motorcycle publication. It’s a homecoming for Cook, who previously worked for the magazine from 1999-2002 as a senior editor and executive editor.

He left Motorcyclist and spent the last eight years as the editor-in-chief of Kitplanes, an amateur-built airplanes journal.

Motorcyclist is a terrific brand and a magazine that’s true to the enthusiast; it’s lively, occasionally controversial and never dull,” Cook said in a statement. “Obviously I’m excited to be back here as editor-in-chief. It’s a fantastic title with a great history, so it’s absolutely the place to be.”

“We have a young and talented staff that is not only eager to work, but made up of hyper-enthusiasts who understand this stuff on a molecular level. It’s a treat to work with folks like that because you don’t have to inspire or provide enthusiasm – they bring it with them to work every day.”
