ORLANDO, Fla. (August 21, 2012) - Golfweek today announced its promotion of associate publisher Jereme Day to the position of publisher effective immediately. Day succeeds Jason Redditt, who is leaving Golfweek to pursue other opportunities. Day will report directly to Francis X. Farrell, president and chief executive officer of Golfweek's parent company, Turnstile Media Group.
"With more than a decade of experience in the golf industry and a proven record of growing key areas of our business, Jereme has been a fundamental part of Golfweek's success in recent years," said Farrell. "In this new role, we are confident that his leadership will allow us to not only strengthen our connection with both readers and clients, but also expand Golfweek's overall reach and position as an integrated media brand."
