ashley codianni photoAshley Codianni, Mashable’s director of news video and the person who brought the DC version of Jimmy Kimmel’s “Mean Tweets,” will soon reunite with her former NowThis News colleague Ed O’Keefe as a senior producer and digital correspondent for CNN Politics Digital.

“The indomitable Ashley Codianni is a social force,” O’Keefe told FishbowlDC of her hire. “Her work defines mobile + social + video, and is a huge credit to Mashable’s dedication to social news. We welcome her exceptional vision and delightfully creative mind to our reimagined CNN Politics team.”

Codianni earned major street cred when she repurposed Kimmel’s series of celebrities reading critical tweets of themselves for Washington with Congressmen and Congresswomen on Capitol Hill. In case you missed, check it out here.

Rumors Swirl of POLITICO Promotion for Susan Glasser

POLITICO revised logoRumors are swirling that Susan B. Glasser, editor of POLITICO Magazine, will soon be named executive editor of POLITICO, a position vacated earlier this month by Rick Berke. Berke, in an email to staff, cited disagreements over strategy with POLITICO president and CEO Jim VandeHei and editor in chief John Harris.

Glasser, who joined the magazine in late 2013, worked for years with VandeHei, Harris, and POLITICO chief operating officer Kim Kingsley at The Washington Post, prior to her forced departure in 2008.

Glasser and a POLITICO publicist that FishbowlDC reached out to for comment have yet to respond.

On Monday, POLITICO announced two promotions to its executive leadership team while hinting at planned expansion into the states, after last week’s announcement of it’s European venture with Berlin-based media company Axel Springer.

The CNN anchor describes his coffee intake as “an IV drip situation that begins when I wake up and doesn’t end until the last possible moment.”
