Dawn Ostroff has been named President, Condé Nast Entertainment, a new role at the company. Ostroff was most recently with CW broadcast network, which she helped launch in 2006. At CW Ostroff oversaw the entire operation, from branding and marketing to developing shows like “Gossip Girl” and “America’s Next Top Model.”

At Condé, Ostroff will use that expertise to develop television shows and movies based on the company’s many brands. “There is an enormous, untapped opportunity at Condé Nast to develop unique and engaging programming,” said Robert A. Sauerberg Jr., President of the publishing house. “Dawn’s extensive experience in cable and digital entertainment, coupled with her strategic expertise, makes her the perfect choice to oversee the launch of this new venture.”
