CBS News has hired Anthony Galloway, global head of video and audio at The Wall Street Journal, as its new senior vice president of streaming, reports Brian Steinberg of Variety.
Steinberg writes, “Galloway, who will report to Neeraj Khemlani, co-president of a unit that comprises CBS News and local stations, is expected to oversee day-to-day programming and production for CBS News’ streaming service. He starts his new role Feb. 14.
“CBS News is in the midst of reworking its streaming operations, once known primarily for providing a national feed from CBS News as well as streams from the news operations of the company’s local stations. Under a plan recently articulated by Khemlani to Variety, CBS hopes to offer ‘the premiere local-to-global streaming news platform’ that will give users the broader perspective of CBS News along with the boots on the ground of regional journalists from its various local news operations.”
