Following their recent change in ownership, Darts World is reasserting our position, as ‘The Official Voice of Darts’, with two major additions to the DW team.
As well as exciting plans, for later in 2020, including an all-new magazine and the development of a wide range of new platforms the team is also adding talent and experience to their writing, reporting, and production team.
Phil Lanning has been writing and reporting on darts for almost thirty years. His knowledge of the darts scene, and its characters, is perhaps second to none. Phil is delighted to join the new Darts World team and bring his expertise and experience to a publication that holds a special place in his heart. Phil’s father, the legendary commentator and journalist Dave Lanning wrote for Darts World during the 1980s and was one of the major voices to popularise darts during its first ‘golden era’.
To complete the family circle we are also delighted to welcome Taylor Lanning, Phil’s son, and Dave’s grandson, to the fold. Taylor is a highly respected pictorial journalist and will be joining as chief photographer.
A Darts World spokesperson said:
It is amazing to think that three generations, of the Lanning family, have been involved with making darts World ‘the Official Voice of Darts’.
