Martin Beck, From LA Times, Joins Marketing Land As Social Media Correspondent
It’s a pleasure to announce that the Third Door Media editorial staff is growing again.
Martin Beck will be joining the news team that produces both MarketingLand.com and SearchEngineLand.com as our new Social Media Correspondent. His first day will be Monday, March 3rd.
Martin comes to us from the Los Angeles Times, where he served as the paper’s social media and reader engagement editor since January, 2010. In that role, he managed the Times’ social media team and trained hundreds of journalists to integrate social media into their daily work routines. His career at the Times began in 1989 as a sports writer and included stints as a copy editor and technology editor, among other roles. You can learn more about Martin on his Marketing Land staff profile page.
As our first full-time Social Media Correspondent, Martin will help us expand our coverage of this increasingly important marketing channel with daily news stories as well as more in-depth feature articles. His experience doing social media for one of the country’s biggest publishing brands will add a unique and valuable perspective to our reporting.
Please join me in giving Martin a warm welcome to the Third Door Media team, and look for his byline to start appearing next week.
