I’m pleased to announce that Bryan Preston has been named deputy managing editor at PJ Media. Longtime readers of PJM are well acquainted with Bryan’s contributions over the years. He was an integral part of our explosive growth over the last decade, serving as the site’s editor-at-large from 2010 until 2014, when he left to pursue opportunities with the Texas General Land Office and the Texas Railroad Commission, working for commissioners George P. Bush and Ryan Sitton respectively. In 2014, Bryan also served as the editor-in-chief of The Grid, PJM’s curated news aggregation project. Over the last two years, Bryan has been dipping his toe back into writing for us, so when the time came to hire a new editor, he was the natural choice. Not only is he an excellent editor and writer, but he brings with him a mile-deep understanding of the issues our readers care most about—along with his Texas values and accent!
