Field & Stream Names New Editor
Longtime Field & Stream staffer Anthony Licata has been promoted to editor, replacing Sid Evans who left last month to join high-end Southern lifestyle magazine Garden and Gun.
The 15th editor in the magazine’s 112-year history, Licata is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting and fishing. "He’s a very talented editor and a total outdoorsman," Bonnier Corp.’s group publisher Eric Zinczenko said of Licata in a statement. "Since his start here in 1998, he’s been responsible for many of the integrated programs, cover packages and ideas that have helped Field & Stream maintain our number on position within the market we serve."
Licata began at Field & Stream as an associate editor and moved up to senior editor in 2000. He was promoted to deputy editor in 2006. In 2007 Licata was editor of the Sportsman’s Notebook which was nominated for a National Magazine Award by the American Society of Magazine Editors.
