Golfweek Acquires Golf Press Association Wire Services

12.10am 29th March 2010 - Media - This story was updated on Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Golfweek magazine has announced its acquisition of three Golf Press Association wire services: The Golf Wire, The Apparel Wire and The Tour Van with effect 1 April. The structure and everyday operations of each news agency will remain unchanged.

By leveraging Golfweek’s extensive US print, digital and mobile networks, custom publishing operations, events and research assets, the newly acquired news agencies have the opportunity to expand their subscriber-bases and provide better coverage of the U.S. golf market.

“Golfweek’s authoritative reputation, unrivaled expertise and broad scope of resources will not only add more depth and breadth to the wire services, but also enable each entity to grow exponentially in its range, reach and capabilities,” said Alex Miceli, CEO and publisher of the Golf Press Association. “The acquisition really opens up a whole new world of opportunities, and I am thrilled about the prospects on the horizon.”

“At Golfweek, we pride ourselves on being leaders, innovators and proponents of all things golf, and this acquisition is yet another huge stride in the continued growth of our company. Bringing The Golf Wire team into the Golfweek family is just another way for us to stay ahead of the competition,” said Clayton Morris, president/publisher of Golfweek.
