DENVER – (Ammoland.Com) – Outdoor Sportsman Group Publishing (OSG) announces John Taranto has been named editor of Game & Fish, OSG’s premier hunting and fishing brand offering regional-specific coverage in four unique monthly print editions as well as customized online content to core enthusiasts across the United States. Taranto will coordinate and manage editorial content for the Game & Fish East, South, Midwest and West editions, and GameandFishMag.com.
The announcement was made today by Outdoor Sportsman Group Publishing Executive Vice President, Group Publisher and Operations, Derek Sevcik.
“John is an industry veteran and brings an invaluable set of editorial skills to Game & Fish,” Editorial Director Adam Heggenstaller said. “He not only is experienced in presenting how-to and where-to content that informs hunters and anglers on a regional level, but also understands gear and trends that influence tactics nationwide. Game & Fishreaders will immediately benefit from John’s expertise and perspective, and I’m excited to work with him in strengthening our content.”
Prior to joining OSG, Taranto spent 15 years with Outdoor Life, serving as executive editor and gear editor. He is credited with elevating the title’s how-to content, as well as developing its product testing methodology. Most recently, he worked with Brothers & Company as a social public relations account manager.
“The thing that drew me to Game & Fish, aside from the opportunity to get back into the world of outdoor editorial, is the tremendous upward trajectory the publication has been on under its present leadership,” Taranto said. “The sky is the limit for this brand, and I’m thrilled and humbled to join such a talented team in bringing first-rate content to Game & Fish’s loyal and passionate readership.”
Taranto will collaborate with a knowledgeable team of Game & Fish regional editors, including David Johnson, Dr. Todd Kuhn, and Drew Warden. He will work from his office near Wichita, Kan., and report to the company office in Harrisburg, Pa.
