HuffPo Hires Two New Editors

CBSNews.com’s Neil Katz named executive news editor


CBSNews.com executive editor Neil Katz has been named executive news editor at the Huffington Post, and Lori Leibovich, a longtime lifestyle editor and writer, has been named women’s editor, according to a press release from the AOL Huffington Post Media Group.

Katz steps into a position formerly occupied by Nico Pitney, who took over as HuffPo's executive editor earlier this month when Jai Singh left to become editor-in-chief at Yahoo.

“It turns out that old journalism and new journalism have much in common,” said Katz, who will be helping to manage all of AOL HuffPo’s editorial teams.
