The American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) has honored American Trucker magazine with a 2010 National Competition Award for Editorial Excellence.
It won the Gold Award for Most Improved. The award recognizes print publications in the business-to-business market.
Under the direction of editorial director Jim Mele and editor Sean Kilcarr, business editor Tim Brady of Kenton, senior art director Dan Zeis and assistant art director Joshua Bourland, American Trucker added editorial content beginning with its January 2009 issue to its formerly all-classified publication.
That content covers new products, news and information and includes a monthly business column, “Business of Trucking,” plus a feature story focusing on the issues important to its readers written by Brady.
In addition, American Trucker’s sister publication, Fleet Owner, garnered multiple awards. Brady pens a monthly column, “Small Business Review,” for Fleet Owner. American Trucker and Fleet Owner are a part of Penton Media Inc. of New York City.
Brady also freelances for several other print and online trucking publications, including Road King and Drivers Seat for Nashville’s Parthenon Publishing. His total is 15 written columns or articles per month.
He has also been a trucking business contributor on SiriusXM Satellite Road Dog Trucking Radio since 2003 and will celebrate seven years of being on-air Aug. 25. He provides trucking business information and commentary Wednesdays from 1-2 p.m. on the Lockridge Report, Sirius 147 or XM 171.
Brady is a business coach and mentor to truckers and teaches online courses detailing the different aspects of running a successful trucking business to small motor carriers and owner/operators through the websites TruckersU.com and TimothyBrady.com.
He and his wife, Terri Jenkins-Brady, own Write Up The Road Publishing and Media in Kenton. For more information, visit www.writeuptheroad.com.
