Commercial Carrier Journal has named Jason Cannon as its equipment editor, focusing on Class 3-8 over-the-road commercial vehicles and related components, including engines, trailers, brakes, tires and lubricants. In his new role, Cannon will also contribute to CCJ’s sister brands, Overdrive and Equipment World.
“Jason is an excellent journalist and a true professional,” says Jeff Crissey, CCJ editor-in-chief. “His strong background and passion for all things truck related make him an excellent addition to the CCJ team.”
Prior to accepting his new position, Cannon served for three years as online editor for Hard Working Trucks, Successful Dealer and Truck Parts & Service, sister brands to CCJ. In this role, Cannon covered the aftermarket, heavy-duty truck sales and service and vocational trucks, equipment and fleets.
Cannon joined Randall-Reilly in 2012 after working for 10 years in various roles at several daily and weekly Alabama newspapers, where he received multiple awards for writing, layout, design and photography.
