USA Today’s Mutzabaugh hired by The Points Guy
USA Today aviation industry journalist Ben Mutzabaugh has been hired by The Points Guy as senior aviation editor.
Ashley Lutz writes, “Mutzabaugh comes to The Points Guy from USA TODAY, where he is best known for launching the industry-leading Today in the Sky blog in 2002. This new hire comes on the heels of another big win for the TPG team when it brought on Scott Mayerowitz, formerly deputy business editor at the Associated Press, who joined as Executive Editorial Director in January, supervising all the company’s editorial sections.
“‘The Points Guy editorial has grown significantly year-over-year since our launch, and we’re thrilled to push our content offerings and platforms even further through the hiring of Ben Mutzabaugh and Scott Mayerowitz,” says CEO and founder Brian Kelly. ‘We’re bringing the best of our industry aboard and plan to build out more breaking news, investigative reporting and industry insight to our platform.’
“In Mutzabaugh’s new role he will be spearheading TPG’s airlines coverage. Working closely with Managing Editor Alberto Riva, he will continue the media company’s growth into more in-depth coverage of the travel industry.
“Mutzabaugh will also oversee TPG’s team of airline reporters, airline flight reviews and special aviation data reports.”
