Following the redesign of its newsroom and the establishment of a new Newsdesk, CNN Business has hired three editors and promoted a writer:
Rory Carroll is the in-coming editor in chief of Jalopnik and begins his duties on May 4. He comes from Crain Communications where he served as managing director of Eleven55. Prior to that, he was with Autoweek where he was the publisher and executive editor for three years.
ABC Television Network has named Victoria Thompson executive editor of multiplatform projects. In her new role Thompson will oversee ABC News projects that will span podcast, nonfiction series and specials, and scripted forms that can be distributed across the Walt Disney TV group and streaming partners. Thompson was most recently a multiplatform senior producer in the Specialized Units and has been with ABC for 11 years.
Sam Shead is the new tech correspondent for CNBC based in London. He covers European technology with a focus on investigative and breaking news. Shead was most recently a staff writer at Forbes and before that has worked at Business Insider and Techworld.
