MIAMI, Feb. 17, 2015 /CNW/ -- Motorsport.com today announced that acclaimed news journalist Jonathan Noble has joined the company as its Formula One editor. The appointment is effective May 14, 2015.
Noble had spent the last 16 years with the United Kingdom-based Autosport where he most recently served as its Group F1 Editor.
"Jonathan has a unique position in the Formula One paddock as the go-to man when it comes to breaking news," said Motorsport.com Editor in Chief Charles Bradley. "His expertise is literally second to none, and his decision to join Motorsport.com is a statement of our intent to become number one in the field."
Today's announcement follows significant additions to Motorsport.com's editorial department, including Bradley who joined Motorsport.com last January from Autosport.
"The addition of Jonathan to our editorial team is a testament to our commitment of offering world-class coverage of F1 news and content to our readership," said Eric Gilbert, vice-president of operations, Motorsport.com. "As the fastest growing online content provider in all of motor sports, we continue to position ourselves as the go-to resource for everything motor sports related. Jonathan is one of the most trusted resources inside the F1 paddock. His leadership and editorial talents will provide the vision and content of world-class F1 coverage our readers deserve."
"We have worked alongside - or against - each other since the last Millennium, so I know exactly what he brings to our writing strength going forwards, which is top-notch news journalism of the very highest standard," Bradley added. "This is a seismic move for Motorsport.com."
In his new role, Noble will lead the direction of all F1 news content for Motorsport.com and report directly to Editor in Chief Charles Bradley.
