Kwin Mosby is the managing editor and content manager for the Vacation.com, a demand generation content marketing website powered by Travel Leaders Group, North America's largest travel agency company. Kwin has more than 25 years of experience in media and the travel industry. He has worked as a freelance writer for publications such as TVOne.tv, AARP.com, Oyster.com and Marriott Traveler.

Before becoming a managing producer for TravelChannel.com, Kwin produced TV show websites, including those for Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern and Most Haunted, a series that followed a group of paranormal experts on a quest to uncover the truth about some of the world’s spookiest destinations. He also managed a 7-hour, interactive Most Haunted Live investigation at Eastern State Penitentiary in 2008 and the paranormal investigation of Winchester House in 2009. For both years, the website received the Cablefax Program Award for best online/mobile extras for a linear show.
As a managing producer, Kwin oversaw the destination and interest content on TravelChannel.com, including Travel's Best, Top Hotels, Outdoors and Adventure, Cruises and LGBT Travel. His role as managing producer required him and his team to monitor the latest travel news and hot travel trends to keep the website and the Traveling Type blog relevant. In 2013, the blog was the recipient of an honorable mention for the Cablefax Award for editorial excellence - programming. In addition to this accolade and responsibilities, Kwin managed content partnerships with internal Scripps Network Interactive brands (e.g., HGTV.com, FoodNetwork.com and GACTV.com), as well as managed and or executed external partnerships with convention and visitor bureaus and other travel brands such as Travel + Leisure, ShermansTravel and Oyster.com.
