"We are thrilled to have this opportunity to expand our product and reach other Wolfpack fans outside of the internet," said Editor-in-Chief James Henderson. "We have assembled a great team of writers, and I look forward to working with them to produce the best publication possible."
"The addition of a print publication to our current website reinforces our position as the best source of reliable and breaking news for NC State fans," he added. "Through a feature driven format and beautiful photography this magazine will take an in-depth look into the heart of Wolfpack athletics."
"We have been able to build the largest Wolfpack community on the internet, reaching nearly 10,000 registered members. Now with Pack Pride Magazine, we have an opportunity to enhance the fan experience through a keepsake quality publication that will only increase our credibility among Wolfpack fans. Our goal has always been to provide supporters of Wolfpack athletics a chance to receive the best information and with Pack Pride Magazine we can accomplish that goal," said Henderson.
Jim Heckman, CEO of TheInsiders and Citadel Publishing, agrees that Pack Pride Magazine is the future of sports publishing.
"Pack Pride has put together a dream team of reporters, combined mega communities and now operates the perfect product for true ‘Pack fans! Now that Steve Williams has left our competitor to join us at Pack Pride, he brings his unique talent and a loyal following with him. Add the #1 NCSU site, Statefans.com and their outstanding editor James Henderson along with the huge community from ACC Boards and you end up with the top reporters, top three ‘Pack communities and now a beautiful, gloss magazine to dominate the marketplace, when it comes to Wolfpack information."
"I'm excited our network had a part of offering such a great opportunity for NC State fans and am confident it we now offer the best information at a much lower price than the competition."
