Deanna Brown Named Byliner President

Former Federated Media CEO Deanna Brown has been named the new president at Byliner. The company collects short stories and articles online, and also publishes digital shorts.

Here’s more from the release:

As CEO of Federated Media, she doubled the company’s revenues and was responsible for building a network that reached 180 million unique visitors a month—outranking Yahoo, AOL, and Microsoft. Prior to Federated, Brown was President of Scripps Networks Interactive, and held Vice President and General Manager titles at Yahoo and AOL. She was CEO and cofounder of Powerful Media/Inside.com, which was acquired by Primedia, and CEO and founder of Gaming Industry News, which was acquired by Ziff Davis. In 1995, Brown cofounded CondéNet, the digital division of publisher Condé Nast.

According to the release, Byliner has published 30 bestsellers since launching its publishing program.

Byliner writers have received two major awards recently: New York Times reporter John Branch was awarded the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing for Snow Fall (published online and released as a New York Times / Byliner Original) and Brian Mockenhaupt won the Michael Kelly Award for his Byliner Original The Living and the Dead.
