Bonnier Corp. named John McEver publisher and Randy Vance editor-in-chief of Boating magazine, which it recently acquired.

Two members of the Boating staff — sales representative Dave Leli, who's been with Boating for 16 years, and senior technical editor Kevin Falvey, who has been on staff for more than 10 years — will remain with the magazine.

In addition to his work as editor-in-chief of Boating Life for the last nine years, Vance is also the author of "Power Boating for Dummies."

McEver's new role at Boating will be in addition to his present duties as publisher of Boating Life and Motor Boating.

Boating's September issue will be the first under Bonnier. Plans include returning to the perfect-bound format and upgrading the paper and printing to meet the standards of Bonnier titles. Readers can also expect to continue seeing stories from Boating's long-serving writers, including Eric Colby, Jeff Hemmel, Charles Plueddeman, Lenny Rudow and others.

The Bonnier Marine Group, a division of Bonnier Corp., has more than 30 magazines, Web sites, events and television shows.
