Managing editor Richard Weinstein is upped to vice president of digital media, where he will work on operations and crafting strategy for C-SPAN’s digital efforts. “He has intricate knowledge of our internal content management systems plus a longstanding interest in innovation,” said C-SPAN co-CEO Susan Swain in a statement. Weinstein has been with C-SPAN since 1986, when he graduated from American University.

Taking over for Weinstein as managing editor is Ben O’Connell, who has been the managing producer of events. Since joining C-SPAN in 2001, he has worked on four presidential campaign cycles, this current one inclusive.

Over at the C-SPAN archives in West Lafayette, Ind., Robert X. Browning is promoted to executive director of the archives. “Dr. Browning’s new title reflects the growing importance of the Archives as both an internal and external resource and Dr. Browning’s strategic role in its future,” said C-SPAN co-CEO Rob Kennedy in a statement. Considering the archives include 24-7 recordings of C-SPAN’s three networks, it is quite the collection.
