Scuba Diving Magazine Shake Up

A bit of a shake up over at Scuba Diving Magazine.

F+W Publications, parent company of Scuba Diving magazine, has announced that Keith Phillips has been promoted to Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of the magazine and scubadiving.com. Current publisher Jason White is leaving the magazine "to pursue other interests".

Phillips has been with Scuba Diving since 1994, serving in various editorial roles. He was promoted to Executive Editor in 2006 and led the redesign of Scuba Diving, which debuted in a new, larger size with the March 2008 issue.

David Blansfield, President of the Magazine Division at F+W, said in a press release, that Scuba Diving magazine and ScubaDiving.com have made great strides this year, with recent design upgrades in the print magazine and the in-the-works web site redesign. "We're committed to serving the needs of the scuba diving community through our new and improved multi-media platform. Moving forward, readers and advertisers alike will benefit from a leader like Keith who understands their passions and aspirations."
