Philip Armour Named Editor-In-Chief of American Cowboy
Boulder, CO. (August 31, 2009) - Active Interest Media Inc. (AIM) today announced that Philip Armour has joined the company as the new editor-in-chief of American Cowboy magazine and its companion website, AmericanCowboy.com. In his new role, Armour will manage content and brand development for American Cowboy, the leading media outlet dedicated to covering and promoting the Western lifestyle. "Philip brings a terrific depth and breadth of editorial experience to this job," says Jonathan Dorn, editorial director of AIM's Western Outdoor Living Group. "A former editor at Outside and Forbes Media, he's also a widely published magazine writer who knows how to craft compelling stories. He brings a passion for the West, its history, and its incredible literary heritage that will enliven the pages of the magazine and connect readers to it like never before."
Armour, who lives on a 10-acre ranch north of Boulder, Colorado with his wife, an equine-facilitated life coach, has also been the editor of Working America-a book that chronicles the lives of working Americans from ranchers to oil drillers. "It's an honor to take the reins of a publication with a 15-year legacy of rich content and to attempt to add to that history," says Armour. "American Cowboy is the proud spokesman for the West, and the magazine has the ear of both long-time locals and newcomers moving here to pursue the Western lifestyle. We'll continue inspiring our readers with great tales of cowboy adventure, expert advice about Western travel destinations and gear, and photography as stunning as the iconic places we feature in our pages."
