I spoke to Craig about this a few days ago, and had planned to keep it under my hat for awhile, but since the official press release has gone out, and Gary Garritan posted it over on HC, I figured it could do no harm here. See below...

CRAIG ANDERTON NAMED EXECUTIVE EDITOR OF EQ

Leading Recording Magazine Revamps Editorial Team

SAN MATEO, CA (JUNE 5, 2006) -- EQ magazine, part of the Music Player Network, has announced that recording industry legend Craig Anderton has been appointed consulting Executive Editor of EQ magazine.

Anderton has been a contributor to EQ since the magazine’s inception, and will now help guide the publication’s overall vision and content in concert with EQ’s existing staff, which includes: Vicki Hartung, Publisher; Michael Molenda, Editorial Director; Matt Harper, Assistant Editor; Debbie Greenberg, Managing Editor; and Doug Gordon, Art Director; following the departure of Eugene Robinson.

“Obviously, we’re thrilled to have such a well-respected and inspirational editorial force in place at EQ,” says MPN Group Publisher Vicki Hartung. “Craig’s reputation speaks for itself. He’s credible, he knows technology, he embraces all recording communities, and he always has his eyes on the future.”

Anderton has played Carnegie Hall, been involved with dozens of major label releases as a musician, producer, or engineer, and guests on guitar with the European-based groups Rei$$dorf Force and Air Liquide. He has written several books—including the classic Home Recording for Musicians—as well as thousands of articles. Anderton has also given seminars on technology and the arts in 37 states, 10 countries, and three languages. He has been involved with Guitar Player and Keyboard magazines since the mid ’70s, and started contributing to EQ magazine in 1991. For the past few years, Anderton has acted as Editor-at-Large for EQ and Keyboard, and contributes regularly to Pro Sound News, Performing Songwriter, Sound on Sound (UK), and Sound+Recording (Germany). Currently, he's also Editor-in-Chief for harmonycentral.com.

“We have an extremely dedicated and talented team assembled here—from editorial to sales—as well as some stellar freelancers,” says Anderton. “These are exciting times, and we all want EQ to reflect that excitement. We plan to re-invent the concept of a publication about recording, while building a community of engineers, musicians, and manufacturers that can help each other make better recordings and ultimately, better music."

To field a question I know a lot of you will have, Craig's Sound, Studio, and Stage forum will be remaining at Harmony Central. But the opportunities for collaboration between HC and MPN (Music Player Network - that's us: KB, EQ, Guitar Player, Bass Player, etc) are unprecedented.

We couldn't be more thrilled to have Craig at the helm of EQ, and since Craig and Ernie go back a long way, it'll also get a lot easier to co-ordinate Keyboard and EQ's content and schedules.

Welcome home, Craig !!!

Steve pretty much nailed it, there are a lot of options open now that weren't open before, and working with Ernie is always a dream. But I'm not returning to EQ...I never left. I'm just in more of a consulting position now regarding the direction of the magazine, and I will of course be depending on feedback from all concerned to deliver something cool \:\)

I should also add that this will not diminish my involvement with Harmony Central at all. I'm very comfortable and happy doing what I do there, but it's not print...and while CMP is doing the web thing, it's very different from what's planned for HC going forward. So basically, I'm a very lucky guy: I get to work with cool print people, cool web people, and look for areas where the two can work together for the benefit of everyone concerned.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!
