Industry Buzz: New Online Editor at MD


By Dan Solomon, Publisher

Since its arrival in 1964, Muscular Development has been a leading title in the competitive world of bodybuilding media.  Acquired by Steve Blechman in 2001, the magazine has undergone several changes, ranging from editorial presentation to staff personnel.  In his latest move, Blechman has named David Baye as MD’s new online editor.

Baye joined MD a few years ago as an online contest reporter and his work has garnered the attention of several observers, including Blechman who remarked, “I have the utmost respect for David and his incredible work ethic, discipline, focus, mindset and determination, plus his vision, passion and drive to be a great leader and online editor,”

Back in 2011, during a major expansion initiative, I joined the team at MD as part of a hiring surge that also included Peter McGough and Bob Cicherillo.  As a brand, MD has evolved from a print magazine into a multifaceted media destination.  Join me in wishing David Baye success in his new role.
