NBC News Launches Digital Imprint


By Dianna Dilworth Comment

NBC News has launched a new eBook imprint called NBC Publishing. The imprint will release enhanced eBooks with videos inside.

The launch follows the media company’s success in the eBook business. Last year NBC worked with Penguin and The Perseus Books Group on various enhanced eBook titles including: JFK: 50 DaysRoots, D-Day:The Battle for Normandy and Berlin 1961.

eBookNewser has more: “NBC has hired publishing veterans Peter Costanzo (a Publishing App Expo veteran) and Brian Perrin to help with the new imprint. Costanzo, previously with F+W Media and Perseus, will work as Creative Director for the new imprint. Perrin, previously with Rodale, will serve as Director of Digital Development. They will both report to General Manager of NBC Publishing Michael Fabiano.”
