Peter Chernin, AT&T to Buy Majority Stake in YouTube Network Fullscreen (THR)
Peter Chernin’s The Chernin Group and AT&T have finalized a deal to acquire a majority stake in YouTube network Fullscreen. GigaOM Financial details of the transaction weren’t released, but Fullscreen CEO George Strompolos, who previously handled partner relations for YouTube, will retain “a material ownership stake in the company,” according to the release. Re/code The sale is supposed to wrap up in the next month; ad holding giant WPP, which invested in Fullscreen earlier, will remain as a “strategic shareholder.” The deal is likely to value Fullscreen, which says it has 4 billion monthly video views, between $200 million and $300 million. Earlier in the year, Disney bought YouTube network Maker Studios, which had 5.5 billion views, in a deal that could ultimately hit $950 million. That sale kicked off a new wave of investor interest in Web video networks, which for now generate most of their eyeballs and revenue on YouTube. Capital New York Dreamworks acquired YouTube channel AwesomenessTV in 2011 for $150 million, Discovery acquired Revision3 in 2012 for $30 million, and Legendary Entertainment bought Nerdist for an undisclosed sum in 2012. Variety Fullscreen, founded in January 2011, works with more than 50,000 content creators — including such YouTube stars as the Fine Bros., Connor Franta and O2L — who have an aggregate of 450 million subscribers. The Culver City, Calif.-based company has about 200 employees worldwide.

Andy Coulson Gets 18 Months in Tabloid Phone Hacking (NYT)
Andy Coulson, a former senior editor in Rupert Murdoch’s news empire and a onetime adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron, was sentenced on Friday to 18 months in prison for his part in the phone hacking scandal that convulsed Britain’s press, police and political elite and inspired calls for tighter regulation of journalists. HuffPost / AP Coulson was convicted June 24 after an eight-month trial triggered by a tabloid-wrongdoing scandal that led Murdoch to shut down the News of The World in 2011. Another former editor, Rebekah Brooks, and four others were acquitted. The Guardian The offense carries a maximum sentence of two years’ imprisonment, but Coulson received a discount of several months for his previous good character. He could be out in less than nine months because, as a non-violent offender, he is required to serve just half his sentence. THR Three other former News of the World staffers and one private investigator who hacked phones for the paper also pleaded guilty to hacking and also received their sentences Friday. They are former news desk editors Greg Miskiw, James Weatherup and Neville Thurlbeck, as well as Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator who was used for hacking. Miskiw and Thurlbeck were sentenced to six months each, Weatherup got a suspended sentence of four months, and Mulcaire was given a suspended sentence of six months. Variety Coulson faces a retrial along with former royals editor Clive Goodman on separate charges that they made illegal payments to police officers to obtain royal phone directories. Over a period of more than a decade, journalists at the now-shuttered Sunday paper listened in on thousands of voicemails belonging to celebrities, politicians and crime victims.

Elle Names Design Director

elle magazine logo GElle has named Evan Campisi its design director. Campisi joins the magazine from Nylon, where he served in the same role since 2012. He previously served as Entertainment Weekly’s associate art director.

“Evan’s talent will continue our tradition of creative innovation, and I’m thrilled to welcome him to Elle,” said Robbie Myers, the glossy’s editor, in a statement.

Campisi is filling the role vacated by Paul Ritter, who left Elle last year to join Glamour.

Campisi begins his new role July 23 and will report to Alex Gonzalez, Elle’s creative director.

Elle Names Alex Gonzalez Creative Director

Someone’s ears must have been burning. On Monday, we wondered if Alex Gonzalez would become Elle’s next creative director, and today, it’s official — he’s joining the magazine in that role, starting in June. Gonzalez is succeeding Joe Zee, who left Elle to join Yahoo.

As part of the Elle deal, Gonzalez will drop his duties as Marie Claire’s artistic director, but continue as Town & Country’s executive artistic director.

Elle has always captured that which is current and evoked emotion through the bold visual representation of how fashion, beauty and culture intersect, and Alex has an innate understanding of that vision,” said Elle’s editor, Robbie Myers, in a statement.

José Díaz-Balart Named MSNBC’s 10 A.M. Host (TVNewser)
Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart has been named MSNBC’s 10 a.m. anchor, replacing Chris Jansing, who is leaving MSNBC to become NBC’s senior White House correspondent. HuffPost He will host his MSNBC show from Miami and take over when Jansing departs in June. Politico / Dylan Byers on Media Díaz-Balart will continue to co-anchor Telemundo’s Noticiero Telemundo and host Enfoque Con José Díaz-Balart. Ari Melber, a co-host on MSNBC’s afternoon program The Cycle, had been in the running against Díaz-Balart for the 10 a.m. slot, several sources said in recent weeks. The Associated Press MSNBC president Phil Griffin said Tuesday the deal has been in the works for some nine months. Griffin says he’s wanted to snag Díaz-Balart for years but had to find a time slot that wouldn’t conflict with the nightly news on Telemundo, which is also a division of NBC Universal. Díaz-Balart is the brother of U.S. Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart and former Rep. Lincoln Díaz-Balart. His aunt was the first wife of Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Variety Díaz-Balart began his career in 1983 and has reported historic events and interviewed major political figures for prestigious news outlets including NBC News and Telemundo. His achievements include being the first journalist to serve as news anchor on two national television networks in Spanish and English on the same day for an entire season.

YouTube to Acquire Videogame-Streaming Service Twitch for $1 Billion (Variety)
Google’s YouTube has reached a deal to buy Twitch, a popular videogame-streaming company, for more than $1 billion, according to sources familiar with the pact. If completed the acquisition would be the most significant in the history of YouTube, which Google acquired in 2006 for $1.65 billion. The impending acquisition comes after longtime Google ad exec Susan Wojcicki was named CEO of YouTube earlier this year. SocialTimes As more consumers cut the cord in search of alternative forms of entertainment, Twitch has experienced impressive growth. In 2013, the service had more unique monthly users than Netflix and Hulu, and it jumped into the top 15 online services recently, passing HBO Go in terms of bandwidth. Mashable More than 1 million gamers broadcast on Twitch each month through Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and their computers; more than 45 million people log on to watch each month. Since its founding in 2011, Twitch has raised more than $35 million in funding. And let’s not forget Twitch Plays Pokémon earlier this year, which was possibly one of the most popular open source gaming experiences ever. GigaOM The Twitch acquisition could help YouTube finally get a foothold in the live video space. Live video has been a complicated subject for YouTube. The video service started to dabble with live streaming all the way back in 2010. In reality, live still doesn’t get big enough audiences to warrant high ad prices, and the fragmented nature of live streaming on YouTube hasn’t made it easier to win over big brands. Twitch has been the one notable exception to this move away from ad-supported live streaming.

Elle Continues Search for Creative Director

The search for Elle’s new creative director is not going so well. Joe Zee left the magazine over a month ago and since then, a couple well qualified people have turned Elle down.

According to WWD, Robbie Myers, Elle’s editor, has asked T, The New York Times Style Magazine’s creative director Patrick Li, as well as David Sebbah (a former T staffer) to fill the void left by Zee, and both declined.

With Li and Sebbah out of the running, who’s left? Alex Gonzalez. Gonzalez is currently Marie Claire’s artistic director and Town & Country’s design director. If Gonzalez takes the role of Elle’s creative director, Myers would ask Gonzalez to drop Marie Claire, because she views it as a competitor.
