Jon Steinberg, who launched Cheddar News in 2016, has been hired as chief executive officer of Future Publishing, the parent of Kiplinger.

He will start ion April 3 and will succeed Zillah Byng-Thorne, who announced her intention to step down last September. She will remain available to support Steinberg over a two-month transition period.

Most recently, Steinberg was the president of Altice USA News & Advertising Division, which includes News 12, i24NEWS, Cheddar News, and Altice USA’s a4 Advertising unit. He joined Altice through the sale of Cheddar News, a digital-first innovative news company.
