JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Convenience Store News, the leading media brand serving the convenience store industry, is proud to announce the promotion of Angela Hanson to associate editor.
Hanson joined CSNews and sister publication Convenience Store News for the Single Store Owner as assistant editor in early 2011 and quickly advanced to the position of field editor, where she was responsible for primary coverage of the candy and snacks categories.
In the past year, she has spearheaded most of CSNews’ industry awards programs; represented CSNews at several important wholesaler trade shows; and taken on several special projects including the monthly CSNews.com Supplier Spotlights news roundup, the monthly Category Snapshot report done in partnership with Nielsen; and The Hub, a wholesaler-focused section in Single Store Owner.
“A top-notch reporter and writer, I believe Angela’s greatest strength is her enthusiasm. She approaches every task with 100-percent effort,” said CSNews Editorial Director Don Longo. “In 2016, Angela will take over the foodservice beat, a critical category for the c-store industry, and she will also be responsible for our enhanced wholesaler coverage.”
Prior to joining CSNews, Hanson served as junior editor at Creative Homeowner Book Press and as managing editor of Anime Insider magazine. She has degrees in creative writing and visual communication technology from Bowling Green State University.
