It was just a few months ago that A.J. Daulerio vacated the EIC position at Gawker and was replaced by John Cook. This week comes word that Daulerio will soon be taking on a high-level three-month consulting gig with BuzzMedia. The move was announced Wednesday on the west coast and again last night at an all-hands NYC BuzzMedia meeting.
Our sources tell us Daulerio will work closely with executive vice president of programming Mike Porath to devise a cohesive new battle plan for the company’s portfolio of websites. BuzzMedia currently operates a staggering 40+ different Web properties.
Porath has an impressive background. Before joining BuzzMedia, he was the editor-in-chief of AOL News as well as an ABC News-pioneering overseas digital reporter, working out of Kosovo.
