So What Do You Do, Aneesh Raman, Senior Editor and Head of PR and Marketing at OZY?

Aneesh HeadshotAneesh Raman‘s resume reads like a choose-your-own-adventure tale. He trekked the globe as an international correspondent for CNN and had noteworthy experiences covering such events as the deadly 2004 tsunami in Asia and the Iraq war. In 2008, Barack Obama’s presidential campaign had such a profound effect on Raman that he took a detour to become a speechwriter for the campaign, which lead him on a new path to the Treasury, the Pentagon, and ultimately to the White House.

Eventually, he wanted to go back to working in news. The world of digital news excited him, and staying true to form, he was ready for another adventure. As he surveyed the digital news landscape, which he likens to the Wild West, he discovered the daily news and culture site OZY and got hooked. He shares, “What I love about OZY is that it’s so unique to any other offering that’s out there. And once I saw it, I knew it was something that I wanted to read every day.”

Raman chats with Mediabistro about what makes OZY so special, and shares his thoughts on the current state of digital journalism and what it might look like in 2024. Read more

OZY Media Snags POLITICO CTO Ryan Mannion

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 12.47.11OZY Media announced that as of September, POLITICO’s Chief Technology Officer Ryan Mannion will serve as its Head of Product. Founded last September by veteran broadcast journalist Carlos Watson and Samir Rao, OZY is based in Silicon Valley, where Mannion will relocate.

“Ryan knows better than anyone how to build a premium product and with his help, OZY will soon offer not just addictive content and elite design, but also game-changing technology so that we look even smarter, fresher and different than everyone else out there,” said Watson, founder and CEO of OZY.

OZY recently brought on former CNN Middle East correspondent and White House speechwriter Aneesh Raman; creative director Dwayne Shaw from Entertainment Weekly; former Tokyo bureau chief for U.S. News & World Report Steven Butler; and Emily Cadei who was with CQ Roll Call.

SF-Based OZY Media Expands DC Footprint Ahead of Midterms

You would be forgiven, dear reader, if you had never heard of OZY Media, a digital news and culture magazine founded by MSNBC and Air America host Carlos Watson. The Silicon Valley-based pub has some high profile backers – business executive (and widow of Steve) Laurene Powell Jobs  and Google’s Chief Legal Officer David Drummond, for example -but has yet to make much of a splash on the East Coast. But that might be changing soon. OZY is making new hires with an eye towards increasing their presence in DC ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.

Steven Butler, who currently works in DC as the Foreign Editor for Knight Ridder Newspapers, is the most recent example. He will come on board as a Senior Editor, and will join a team that already includes former White House speechwriter and CNN war correspondent Aneesh Raman, former CQ Roll Call writer Emily Cadei and former CIA Acting Director John McLaughlin -all of whom are based in DC.

OZY is aimed at the so-called “Change Generation,” which they describe as “a global, age-agnostic, educated and curious audience that, aside from just knowing about the daily news, wants to learn about the topics and people of tomorrow.” The site covers everything from politics to foreign and national affairs, technology, arts and culture. They also host a live event series, “OZY Across America,” which came to DC this past March.
