Nicholas Carlson, global editor in chief of Business Insider, sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
I’m excited to announce that we’ve hired Erica Berenstein into a new role we just created, Head of BITV. She will report directly into me.
Erica’s mission is to help us replicate the success Barbara Corbellini Duarte and team have had on Business Insider Today on with more BI shows on more platforms.
She’s also going to bring video to BI Prime in a whole new way.
Before joining us, Erica worked at the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. She also taught video storytelling at Columbia Journalism School and CUNY.
We’re particularly excited by Erica’s work at the Times, where she managed to convince hundreds of reporters to work with the newspaper’s video team. We hope to develop that kind of cooperation here.
As soon as you meet Erica, you’ll see she’s energetic, thorough, and extremely smart.
We’re so excited to have her!
