The NewsBeast's Daniel Blackman, a Google vet who became chief digital officer a little over a year ago, has left the company. Insiders said he was pushed out; Blackman couldn't be reached. 

His departure comes at a time when the Daily Beast is experiencing some momentum, with year-over-year gains in traffic and revenue and Webby Award honors in May for best news site. The print side also is up—ad pages jumped 28 percent in first-quarter 2012 versus the year-ago quarter.
