WCM’s Bob Ashley Receives RVIA Honor
Bob Ashley, a columnist for Woodall’s Campground Management and RVBusiness magazines, has been honored by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) with its “Distinguished Service in RV Journalism” award.
The award was announced at the RVIA annual meeting last week in Orlando, Fla.
Ashley is an Indiana-based freelance writer/editor and a 25-year newspaper veteran who has focused on the RV industry and national recreation issues for 18 years.
Ashley writes a regular column, titled “On Campgrounds,” for WCM, in which he talks about current business trends with campground owners and operators around the country, and “Public Domain” for RVB.
He also writes for other trade publications.
The RVIA’s script on the announcement follows:
“The Distinguished Achievement in RV Journalism Award is presented to journalists for exemplary coverage of the RV industry or RV travel. Bob Ashley has covered the RV industry for nearly 20 years as both a trade writer for RVBusiness and a reporter for enthusiast publications such as Motorhome and Trailer Life. He specializes in writing about the research, development and production of RVs and in his career has covered the industry’s evolution in product development from the frontlines. He also examines key legislative issues affecting the RV industry in his “Public Domain” column in RVBusiness.”
The award will be presented during Committee Week in June.
