The Digital Ticker: Krakauer, Smee, Ashburn

  • Former TVNewser editor Steve Krakauer is leaving CNN, where he is senior digital producer, for Glenn Beck‘s TheBlaze, where he will be VP of Digital Content. “The Blaze is at the forefront of understanding the new ways people consume news and entertainment,” says Krakauer. “Being able to help shape where it’s going was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”

  • NBC News Digital is creating an Original Video Unit for social, mobile and web audiences. Bill Smee, who had been EP of the award-winning Slate V, will head up the group. Says NBC News digital SVP Vivian Schiller: “We will now have an additional focus on original video that extends the news division’s on-air and digital brands.”

  • DailyDownload’s Lauren Ashburn has followed Howard Kurtz to Fox News. According to HuffingtonPost, Ashburn will be a contributor to Fox News and Fox Business while continuing to run the social media-focused website. Kurtz was an early contributor to the site.
