One of the biggest names in video game journalism has moved onto greener pastures. Garnett Lee, 1UP’s executive producer, previously executive editor, has left 1UP.com to be editorial director for GameFly Media.
GameFly Media is a division of GameFly Inc. which includes Shacknews, FileShack, ShackVideo, Ponged, and Game Answers.
Garnett Lee on his new position: “I am delighted to join GameFly. I’ve had an amazing time at 1UP during which I’ve had the opportunity to run all the different individual elements of the content package–news, previews, reviews, video, and managing editor. Coming to GameFly gives me a chance to put everything I’ve learned together.”
As the host of the popular podcast 1UP Listen UP, it is expected that David Ellis will transition to that position in the near future. According to Shacknews, Garnett plans to develop a podcast in his new position. So you may not be without his voice in your long list of weekly podcasts you listen to.
We here at Gamer Limit wish the best to Garnett Lee in his new position.
