We deeply regret to announce the October 20 passing of veteran travel industry journalist Robin Amster.
Robin joined travAllianceMedia in 2015, bringing more than 25 years of experience as a travel industry reporter and editor to her position as the executive editor responsible for retail travel coverage for Vacation Agent and [email protected] magazines and TravelPulse.com.
In addition to travel, Robin wrote about business, interior design and architecture and lifestyles for consumer magazines and websites. She was awarded two New Jersey Press Association awards for her writing on interior design and fashion.
Several months ago Robin took a leave to deal with health issues. Her funeral was held Monday in Vauxhall, N.J. Her friendliness, knowledge and experience were valued assets at travAllianceMedia.
“Robin brought a wealth of knowledge about travel agent issues to our publications,” said Theresa Norton, editor-in-chief of Vacation Agent and [email protected] magazines. “She knew everyone at all the travel agent organizations, host agencies, and franchise operators, and they all knew Robin. She was a well-liked and highly respected journalist and will be missed by her colleagues and travel industry friends.”
