New York Post Adds to Staff Ahead of Website Revamp

The New York Post’s website looks like it was created in 2001, so we’re happy to hear that a completely new NYPost.com is launching next week. According to a memo obtained by Capital New York, the new site will include “responsive design across all devices, better navigation and search, immersive and fun new features, and much more.”

In advance of that relaunch, the Post has expanded its team. See below for the major additions.

And just for the record, we don’t have anything against 2001. It was great. Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles came out that year! Hard to top that.

  • Brad Feldman has been named VP and head of “Post Studios,” which is a team “dedicated to creative custom integrated solutions.” Feldman comes to the Post from Time Inc.
  • Melissa Hart joins as director of sales and marketing. She most recently worked at Microsoft.
  • Michael Cascio joins as VP of national sales. He was most recently with the social advertising platform 140 Proof.
  • Sandra Baez has been tapped as VP of advertising strategy, product and operations. She joins the Post from Dow Jones.
  • Neil Nagraj, most recently the New York Daily News’ homepage editor, has been named web editor.
