Newcom Media is pleased to announce the hiring of Leo Barros as associate editor of Today’s Trucking magazine.
Barros brings to the position international newspaper writing and editing experience, and has also worked recently as a longhaul truck driver.
“I am returning to my first love at Today’s Trucking, writing, while telling stories about trucking, an industry which I have experienced first-hand, as a longhaul truck driver,” Barros said of his new role.
Barros worked as an editor most recently for Postmedia News before pursuing a career as a trucker.
“Since I love long drives and was always intrigued by trucks, I decided to give trucking a shot as a profession. I obtained my CDL and began working as a longhaul truck driver, delivering goods across, Ontario, Quebec and the Great Lakes area in the U.S.,” he said.
Barros, who speaks Hindi and loves watch cricket on TV, will also be writing for Road Today, highlighting the South Asian community.
