I’m confident that her innovation, vision and approach to reporting and storytelling—along with her editorial leadership—will enable us to deliver the caliber of content our users expect, while introducing CNN stories to an ever-growing new audience.

And Artley added:

CNN is a global news powerhouse, and the opportunity to lead the editorial effort for their site is a challenge I’m enthusiastic about taking on. I’m excited to help their talented journalists, technologists and business teams to deliver news and information in fresh and dynamic ways.
