Las Vegas, NV, January 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Associated Content’s “The G-Man”, Gary G. Toms, has just been selected as a staff writer for Felony Magazine, an urban contemporary publication that showcases celebrated and aspiring models from all over the world. Michael Dixon, Executive Editor, noted that the magazine will expand its coverage in 2009 to include hard news, politics, op-eds and the entertainment industry and felt Toms would be a perfect fit after reading his work on Associated Content. He immediately contacted the controversial journalist and writer and requested his services at Felony.
“From day-one, it was evident that Gary and I shared a similar vision for Felony [Magazine]. Having someone who is well developed in his craft and has the stature in the journalism community necessary in this digital age, is something that I never dreamed of in the early years of Felony,” said Dixon. However, with the new year comes change. Our readers will see much more in-depth reporting, more interesting interviews and more informative features with 'The G-Man' on board. As a matter of fact, I'm already collaborating with him for a major, major story we hope to publish very soon. I can't go into details, but I can tell you this will be a great article, especially when you consider this person and The G-Man are explosive and extremely controversial figures.”
During the course of his journalism and writing career, Toms has earned a total of nine commendations for journalism, op-ed writing and community service from the U.S. House of Representatives, the New York State Senate, New York City Council, and the Office of Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, in addition to several church and community-based organizations. His work has been praised by the former editor of the National Almanac of American Politics, Mr. Gideon Berger, the National Journal’s John Maggs, a leading reporter for the Washington, D.C. based magazine, and several reporters for the New York Times. Each worked very closely with him when researching and writing major articles based on the Rockaway (Queens) area, where Toms served as Associate Editor of “The Wave of Long Island”, and national issues affecting the black community.
“I was completely floored when I received the email from Dixon. When he explained that the title implies the models are so beautiful…it should be criminal, it all fell into place. The fact that Felony will place greater emphasis on covering real news and other vital topics is what really piqued my interest. Right now, I feel like a free agent that just signed with the New York Yankees. It feels pretty damn good, and I fully intend to make the most of this opportunity. I’m very grateful for the exposure that Associated Content has brought me. Otherwise, this may never have happened.”
Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, Felony is available in western sections of the United States, but Dixon is confident that the print publication will begin to make its presence felt in the eastern regions of the country in 2009. Felony is always in search of its next “Felony Girl”. Experienced models, and aspiring models alike, should drop by their model site at www.felonygirl.com to be considered. Currently, the online edition of the magazine is also attracting a considerable fan base in Canada, the United Kingdom, the Philippines, India, Australia, China, Russia and all over the United States - just to name a few.
