New York Post Web Editor Leaves for Reuters

Erle Norton, NYPost.com’s Editor since 2007, is leaving for a position at Reuters. Capital New York reports that Norton will be tasked with overseeing three Reuters verticals —  a YouTube channel, Reuters Insider and a video distribution service.

Norton will be reporting to Dan Colarusso, a former Post editor who joined Reuters in November.

Reuters and YouTube Join Forces to Launch Reuters TV

Reuters and YouTube have teamed up to launch Reuters TV, a site packed with video analysis and commentary much more educational than what you typically watch online. While the videos featured probably won’t be as funny as a cat reading a book (that’s silly! Cats can’t read!), they’ll definitely be worth checking out.

A sampling of the videos:

“This deal with YouTube gives Reuters a way to showcase our collection of talented journalists and compelling video from around the world,” commented Dan Colarusso, Reuters’ Global Head of Programming. “It will offer unique insights and images that other media companies simply can’t match.”

Managing Editor of Bloomberg TV Leaves for Reuters

Dan Colarusso is joining Reuters as its new Global Head of Programming. Colarusso was most recently Managing Editor of Bloomberg Television, and prior to that he was Portfolio.com’s editor, and had earlier stints editing the New York Post’s Business and Metro sections.

Steve Adler, Editor-in-Chief of Reuters, said in an internal memo that Colarusso will be tasked with growing the company’s “increasingly influential financial video service into a broader video offering, serving our diverse customers on all delivery platforms.”

Colarusso will report directly to Chrystia Freeland, Editor-in-Chief of Thomson Reuters Digital.

Former Portfolio.com Staffer Lands TV Gig

Colarusso_8.18.phpBloombergTV has brought on online and print veteran Dan Colarusso to serve as managing editor of U.S. television for the network, TVNewser reports.

Colarusso previously worked as managing editor for Portfolio.com, the Web site for doomed Condé Nast business publication Portfolio, which was shuttered earlier this year.

Prior to joining Portfolio.com, Colarusso worked as a business editor and metro editor at The New York Post, although his depature from the paper was fraught with drama. He has also contributed to The New York Times, Barrons and The Daily Beast.

The news comes one day after we learned that another Portfolio cast-off, Jim Impoco, had taken a somewhat non-traditional role at Reuters as enterprise editor. As traditional journalism models fold and evolve, we will probably be seeing more print journalists moving to the Web and then working in multimedia or, like Colarusso, television. It’s possible that the print jobs that have disappeared in the past year won’t return, so it’s more important than ever to be dynamic.

What do you think about this shift?
