UNITED STATES — RV Daily Report readers will unwrap a special gift when they return from the holidays.
At the end of the month, ownership of the site returns to founder Greg Gerber, who plans to spend his holiday season breathing new life into the publication. His gift to readers will roll out January 7 in the form of a refreshed RV Daily Report, complete with new logo, new website, and revitalized newsletter.
Monday through Friday, the newsletter will still focus on industry news, however, the weekend edition is in for a big change as Gerber plans focus it on consumer-related stories.
He says he plans to “tweak RV Daily Report’s coverage to make it more like a small-town newspaper” in order to share the inspiring stories of the good people working to better the industry. He plans to devote the weekly edition to news and information of interest to people living the RV lifestyle.
“There are a lot of wonderful people involved in the RV industry, and I’ll be zeroing in on those features,” he says.
Owners Terry and Evada Cooper are preparing to step out to run their other businesses, which include the National RV Inspectors Association and the National RV Training Academy, and Editor Ronnie Wendt will put her energies in her own thriving businesses, In Good Company Communications and Wild Berry Lane Photography.
As the Coopers and Wendt bid adieu and shut down RV Daily Report till next year, they note they see great things ahead for the publication.
“We look forward to seeing what Greg has in store for RV Daily Report next year,” says Wendt. “Greg and I have worked together many times over the years, and I’ve always admired his ability to find innovative ways to address an audience. I’m sure this time will be no exception!”
She adds, “I also want to take the time to say that while I’m saying goodbye to RVDR, I am not saying goodbye to the industry. I’m still writing for other companies in the industry. You might even run into me at a campground. While I’m leaving the newsletter, I am not leaving my favorite pastime behind.”
Finally, both the Coopers and Wendt want to take the time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
