A lot of moves today. Stick with us. The latest is Grant Whitmore, who is leaving Hearst Magazines to join The New York Daily News as its executive VP of digital. Whitmore has been with Hearst since 2011, most recently serving as digital vice president and general manager of Hearst Magazines.
“Grant is a creative and bold thinker, exactly the kind of visionary to lead and advance our growing digital business,” said Daily News CEO and president, Bill Holber, in a statement.
This is quite the hire by the Daily News, as Whitmore helped build and expand Hearst Magazines’ digital brands.
Whitmore joins the Daily News in January.
