I am pleased to announce that Jonathan Dube will be returning to ABCNews.com next month as the new Vice President in charge of our website. Jonathan worked with us in the early days of our site and then went on to a tour at MSNBC.com. Most recently he has been in charge of the digital platforms at the Canadian Broadcasting Company. In his new role at ABC News Digital, Jonathan will oversee the strategic planning, business strategy, editorial content, and production of our website. Jonathan will report to Paul Slavin.

I am also happy to announce that Deirdre Michalopoulos has been promoted to Managing Editor of ABCNEWS.com. Deirdre has been crucial to the growth and development of the site during her tenure there. In her new role, she will oversee the day to day editorial content and production of the site and will report to Jonathan.

I know that, working together, Jonathan and Deirdre will take ABCNEWS.com to even greater heights with their leadership and editorial instincts.

Please join me in congratulating them on their new roles.
