Games media giant GameSpot has promoted Rob Crossley to UK editor.
Crossley joined the firm as news editor in last September after a two-year stint as associate editor at CVG. He is GameSpot’s first UK editor since the departure of Guy Cocker in May 2013.
Meanwhile, another CVG alumni – Tamoor Hussain – has joined the GameSpot team as UK news editor. Hussain worked at CVG for four years, rising up from editorial assistant to features editor.
I’m delighted to see Tamoor join GameSpot as key member of its editorial team in the UK,” Crossley said. Knowing first-hand how skilled and dedicated Tamoor is, I’m confident he’ll be in his element.
I’m also incredibly proud to be promoted to the role of UK editor. It’s a huge opportunity, and I’m looking forward to repaying the faith that CBS Interactive has shown in me.”
Hussain added: I’m thrilled to join the GameSpot team, where I’ll get to work with people I looked up to as an aspiring games journalist. Whether it’s news, editorial, or video, few site can produce content to the quality that GameSpot does and even fewer can do it as consistently.”
