Politico is making changes to its video and media teams. Key points: 1. Carrie Stevenson, a 20-year veteran of CNN, has been hired as executive producer of their live shows at the summer presidential conventions. 2. Lauren Pulte has been promoted to Video Manager and Producer. 3. Olivia Petersen has been promoted to Media Relations Manager. 4. They’ve hired Jacqueline Corba as their New Media Coordinator. They plucked her from GWU, where she was until last week. 5. Alexander Trowbridge (or “Trow” as they like to call him in the wilds of Rosslyn) will now be a Video Reporter. 6. Julio Negron has been promoted to Senior Video Producer. 6. Madeline Marshall is their “newest” video producer, whose recent claim to fame is being proposed to in the newsroom. She’s engaged to Photo Editor Jay Westcott.
