Vox Media Names Head of Video

Gavin Purcell joins the team.

Vox Media has named Gavin Purcell head of video, a new role at the company.

Purcell most recently served as a producer for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

“As we develop new formats on the web and develop new talent on the web, we can always have an eye toward how do we go longer and develop things that might also be appropriate for other, more lean-back platforms,” Vox CEO Jim Bankoff told The Hollywood Reporter. “That’s another benefit of having Gavin on the team.”
