“Marketplace” hires executive director for digital
Sarah Moughty has been hired as executive director of digital for “Marketplace,” the public radio business and financial news show.
Moughty will oversee digital strategic vision and content across the organization.
Before joining “Marketplace,” Moughty led the digital team at “Frontline,” where she oversaw a team of reporters, designers, developers and video producers, and helped guide the series’ shift to a multiplatform news organization.
Moughty joined “Frontline” in 1999 as a member of the promotions team and has since spent many years on the digital team as a writer, producer and editor.
Under Sarah’s leadership, “Frontline”’s digital team has been recognized with a duPont Columbia Award, four Online Journalism Awards, two IRE awards, and three Emmy nominations, and the series’ digital audience has grown by 75 percent.
In addition, “Marketplace” announced it has hired Emilie Cotter as its chief brand officer.
Cotter is responsible for shaping brand identity, experience, visibility and audience engagement. Prior to joining “Marketplace,” she was senior vice president and partner at global public relations firm FleishmanHillard. She previously served as director of corporate and brand communication with Lucasfilm.
The announcements follow the hiring last month of Evelyn Larrubia as executive editor of news and Sitara Nieves as executive director of On Demand.
