Nicolle Monico to Lead Competitor.com, Scott Cropper Chosen as Web Developer
Boulder, Colorado, USA — March 1, 2018 — Pocket Outdoor Media, the leading publisher in endurance sports, is pleased to announce two new hires for key online positions. Award-winning travel writer Nicolle Monico has taken over editorial duties for Competitor.com as its Web Editor while Scott Cropper, whose work has been selected as a finalist in the 2018 Folio Digital Awards, leads the Pocket Outdoor Media web development team as Full Stack Developer. Monico is based in San Diego while Cropper will work out of Pocket Outdoor Media’s Boulder office.
“As an active runner and lover of the written word, I am excited to cover the sport, review gear, and highlight the best destinations for runners on Competitor.com,” said Monico. She was formerly Travel Editor for JustLuxe online magazine and was named “Best Luxury Travel Writer” in the nation by readers of USA Today and 10Best.
Cropper comes to Pocket Outdoor Media from Denver’s 5280 Publishing, where he relaunched 5280.com, named a finalist in the 2018 Folio Digital Awards for Website Launch/Relaunch. He was formerly a web developer for VeloNews.com, Triathlete.com, and Competitor.com from 2009-2012, and freelance developer for VeloPress.com, all online properties owned by Pocket Outdoor Media. “Coming back to work for these brands is a little like coming home,” said Cropper. “Readers will notice the difference soon as we begin updating and modernizing the media experience on all of Pocket’s websites.”
Pocket Outdoor Media’s Chief Operating Officer Greg Thomas said, “We welcome both Nicolle and Scott and view both as crucial to helping us develop new content for our readers and exciting opportunities for our advertising partners.”
