The Morning Ticker: Salmon’s Fusion, Facebook’s Storyful, Cooper’s Pad

By Chris Ariens Comment

  • Following his departure from Reuters, Felix Salmon is joining Fusion’s digital team as senior editor. Fusion CEO Isaac Lee says Salmon has a “deep understanding of the way the millennial generation likes to communicate and consume information.”

  • Facebook has launched FB Newswire. Using Storyful, the Newswire is meant to be a resource that will make it easier for journalists and newsrooms to find, share and embed newsworthy content from Facebook in the media they produce.

  • Anderson Cooper has put up the for sale sign at one of his Hamptons pads. Cooper is asking just shy of $3 million for the 2.4-acre property which includes a 5-bedroom, 5-bath cottage. The buyer will have Cooper for a neighbor. He owns another house next door.
