AOL Names New News Head

  • Reuters, Friday, October 29, 2010 2:45 AM
Jonathan Dube has been named senior vice president and general manager of AOL News & Information, Reuters reports. Dube, who most recently served at ABCNews.com, will take the lead on AOL's news and content division, which includes the tech, finance, and sports group. Dube will report directly to David Eun, president of AOL Media & Studios, and the man seen to be leading the company's original content charge behind CEO Tim Armstrong.

"Equal parts journalist and business strategist, Jonathan is adept at building online content partnerships and creating exceptional user experiences," Eun said in a statement. Just last week, AOL confirmed losing a number of top editors, including AOL News editor-in-chief Mike Nizza. AOL also lost World Editor James Graff, James Burnett, its enterprise editor, and Daily Finance Senior Writer Sam Gustin. The departures no doubt disrupted AOL's broader content-centric strategy, which Armstrong has been pursuing for the last year.
