Anthony De Rosa Leaves Reuters for Circa


By Chris O'Shea Comment

Anthony De Rosa, social media extraordinaire, is leaving Reuters. De Rosa has been tapped by Circa to be its new editor-in-chief. Circa is a startup that offers news summaries for smartphones. De Rosa was most recently Reuters’ social media editor. Circa then, is right in his wheelhouse.

In a post on Circa, De Rosa explained his decision:

There’s a huge opportunity to present news in a way that’s made for mobile. Nobody is thinking about this more than Circa and I’m thrilled to help move that mission forward. Matt [Galligan] and David [Cohn] have a proven record of success and I feel like we have a shared vision for transforming the traditional article format.

De Rosa will join Circa next month.
