CNBC’s digital adds creative director, writer departs
CNBC‘s digital news operation has hired Caroline Moss from Business Insider to be its creative director.
Moss was previously a deputy editor at Business Insider. At CNBC, she joins executive editor Jay Yarow, who also joined the business news website from Business Insider.
Moss will work on a variety of special projects with a focus on video and help managing editor Jenna Goudreau — who was also hired from Business Insider — think up new shows and ideas that fit within the “Make It” umbrella.
She previously wrote for The Daily Dot and has had bylines in Cosmopolitan and The New York Times. She also writes a humor series for The Toast called “Hey Ladies.” Moss graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a degree in journalism.
In addition, writer Heesun Wee has left CNBC.com to pursue opportunities on the West Coast.
Wee was a features reporter and editor for CNBC.com, where she covered topics that span manufacturing, agriculture, emerging markets and the North Korean economy.
Wee has a specialty in long-form, cross-platform storytelling. She earned a N.Y. State Society of CPAs Excellence in Financial Journalism award for “China is changing your dinner plate” that showed how China’s rising middle class is transforming U.S. agriculture and water.
