Massei, who has covered the 49ers professionally for more than 20 years and on a full-time basis since 1994, previously was associated with Scout.com as editor in chief of the sfillustrated.com web site for much of the past decade.
He has covered the 49ers professionally for two newspapers and for 10 years as editor in chief of the team's NFL magazine. He has written two books about the 49ers and currently covers the team as one of his primary beats as a Northern California correspondent for The Associated Press.
"I look forward to bringing high standards of in-depth, year-round coverage and analysis to subscribers and readers of NinersDigest.com as the 49ers move into a new era with a new coaching staff," Massei said. "I've previously had interaction with several individuals who frequent this site and know they are some of the most knowledgeable and dedicated 49ers fans around. Please feel free to contact me and get involved with 49ers discussion as we move forward."
Look for the expanded coverage that begins with Massei's duties as publisher leading up to next week's NFL draft.
