Guy Vidra Named CEO of The New Republic

Guy_Vidra_PhotoThe New Republic today named Guy Vidra its first CEO. Vidra comes from Yahoo News where he served as general manager and prior to that was head of business development at The Washington Post. 

“Guy is a highly respected innovator with deep experience who will build on our recent progress in redefining The New Republic for a new time,” said Chris Hughes, the publication’s owner.

Vidra added in a release, “I am eager to develop new products, push into new categories, and experiment with new approaches that will enhance and broaden our reach and deepen our relationship with readers.”

The release notes that Hughes will no longer serve as editor-in-chief of the publication but will remain as publisher and executive chairman. A TNR publicist has yet to respond to Fishbowl with whether Vidra will also take on that role or another hire for it will soon be announced.

UPDATE: TNR spokeswoman clarified that, “All divisions of the company — advertising, business development, technology, editorial, etc. — will report to Guy in the role of CEO, and Franklin Foer will continue to oversee editorial content and strategy in his role as Editor.”

So Long to CNN’s ‘Crossfire’

Crossfire304x200Where is CNN’s “Crossfire” you ask? Not on CNN as of late. And it hasn’t been for a considerable amount of time.

The Daily Caller’s “The Mirror” exclusively reported a CNN publicist saying, “The program is on extended hiatus” and citing “common sense” to predict its demise.

TVNewser reported on the show’s absence from programming earlier this month, a year after its network reintroduction with co-hosts Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones.

Mashable’s Ashley Codianni to Join CNN Politics Digital

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.”
