Media company Tegna said Adam Ostrow is joining the company as chief digital officer.
Ostrow was previously chief strategy officer at digital media site Mashable and will be responsible for creating, implementing and evangelizing Tegna’s digital vision and strategy, as well as helping to inform, engage and grow audiences across platforms.
Ostrow has been with Mashable since 2007 and was the company’s second employee, which Tegna said means he was involved in virtually all aspects of developing and growing the brand, including its Mashable Studios division.
“As we continue to reinvent local journalism in the digital age, we are connecting with audiences in new and innovative ways on Tegna-owned platforms, in addition to forging new partnerships with digital publishers and creating new, second screen experiences for our content,” said president and chief executive Dave Lougee in a statement. “Adam is a proven entrepreneur, editorial leader and digital media executive. I look forward to working with him as we continue to better serve our audiences across platforms and tell meaningful stories that make a difference.”
Ostrow added, “Whether it is ‘Charlie Foxtrot,’ 'Verify' or ‘Daily Blast Live’, Tegna is producing high-quality, original content across platforms. I look forward to further super-charging the company’s growth through new digital initiatives.”
