TUSCALOOSA, Ala., (June 2012) – Randall Reilly has named Wayne Grayson to the editorial staff of Equipment World magazine. Grayson, who comes to Equipment World from The Tuscaloosa News, will serve as the magazine’s Equipment Editor.
After graduating from the University of Alabama in 2009, Grayson worked at The Tuscaloosa News, Tuscaloosa, Ala., writing a daily technology blog and a weekly technology column. He was also very involved in the newspaper’s social media efforts. In his role with Equipment World, Grayson will use his ability to effectively communicate complex subjects to a general audience in his coverage of construction equipment and technology in Equipment World’s print and online products.
Grayson was part of The Tuscaloosa News’ staff when it reported the aftermath of the April 27, 2011, tornado that devastated much of the city. That coverage won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News.
“We welcome adding Wayne’s expertise on technology and social media to our editorial staff,” said Marcia Gruver Doyle, editorial director of Randall-Reilly’s Construction Division.
