InTheBite Hires Industry Veteran John Brownlee as Editor-in-Chief

JUPITER, FL – Dale Wills, Founder and President of InTheBite, has announced the hiring of marine industry veteran, John Brownlee, as ITB’s new Editor-in-Chief. “Under Brownlee’s leadership in editorial and digital media, his intelligent perspectives and vast industry knowledge will move the brand forward with his long list of proven skill sets,” Wills said. “It’s only fitting as we move past our 20th year anniversary that we announce Brownlee with his editorial integrity as the new editor.”

Brownlee most recently served as Director of Marketing for Yellowfin Yachts, but he also has a long history in the outdoor journalism world. He previously served as Editor-in-Chief of Salt Water Sportsman and Marlin magazines, and as Senior Editor of Sport Fishing, Anglers Journal and Power & Motoryacht magazines. In addition, he has produced and hosted several top-rated TV fishing shows, including Sport Fishing Television, Anglers Journal TV, and Ocean Legacy.

“It’s extremely exciting to return to what I love to do most,” Brownlee said, “which is creating great fishing and boating content. It’s equally awesome to get back to working with a smaller, family-owned company.”

Since 2002, InTheBite has been an invaluable resource for the owners, captains and mates of offshore sportfishing boats, providing exceptional content profiling boats, gear, electronics, destinations, and employment opportunities.
