Starting with next issue Keith Mulligan will be the new editor of SNAP.
Tread #2, summer 1996: Tell us about your current situation with SNAP ?
Steve Buddendeck: I'm no longer the editor. I wouldn't move to california and that's what Brad (McDonald, publisher of SNAP and RIDE) wanted. I didn't quit and I wasn't fired, we just had a difference that we couldn't agree on. (...)
Tread: Do you wish things could have been different, or are you happy with the way they are now ?
Steve Buddendeck: No I'm not happy with the way they are. I feel like it's my magazine, I feel like I started it, I was a huge part of it. Brad gave me a chance and I made the magazine really great. I'd like to still be doing it. I like the magazine a lot, it was fun, I felt like it was better with me out east. (...)
Tread: Mulligan's the editor now. Do you think he can continue with what you builded and started ?
Steve Buddendeck: Tough question. No. Eventually. I respect Keith. He's a good photographer, I don't know if he can write that well but he'll learn. I mean, I think he'll do a good job. I think that's it's gonna be hard for him at first, it was really hard for me at first. If you look at the first issue of SNAP compared to now, it's come a long way. I think he has it easier. The magazine has money now. (...)
East Coast Editor: Steve Buddendeck.
New Editor: Keith Mulligan.
Keith Mulligan, www.defgrip.com, february 2006: That included writing and shooting almost every article, laying out the magazine, shooting photos for Ride, and doing a million and one other things. It was a small operation to say the least.

Keith Mulligan, www.defgrip.com, february 2006: The first photo I shot that made the cover was Mike King and a gate full of double-A pros at the Winter Nationals in Phoenix, Arizona; 1996. It was the first issue of Snap that I was the editor of. It's still one of my favorite covers.
