Craig Silverman Joins BuzzFeed

He's going to head up BuzzFeed Canada.

BuzzFeed has hired Craig Silverman as editor of its new Canada site. Silverman is the founder of Regret the Error, a blog that reports on media errors and corrections.

Silverman also serves as an adjunct professor for the Poynter Institute, which has housed Regret The Error since 2011. His work has appeared in The Toronto Star, Columbia Journalism Review, The Globe And Mail and more.

Silverman told The Globe and Mail that BuzzFeed Canada is going to start off slowly. “We’re going to start publishing things and we’re going to look very closely about how it performs,” he explained.
