Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV has named Dustin Block its new digital executive producer and David Bartkowiak as managing editor of ClickOnDetroit.

Block starts Monday April 25. He’ll work with station and website editorial, marketing and commercial teams to “grow audiences and revenues by developing new digital platforms that deepen user and viewer engagement and provide new opportunities to commercial partners.”

“With Dustin’s extensive experience and knowledge of digital we are thrilled to be welcoming him to WDIV and Graham Media Group,” said Marla Drutz, vp and GM. “He is the ideal candidate at a time when we are extremely focused on growing our business through digital expansion.”

For the last five years, Bartkowiak has been online news editor/web producer for the station’s website. He’ll oversee news and editorial content across all of WDIV’s digital platforms.

“We have made great strides in the digital space and Dave has been an integral part of that,” said news director Kim Voet. “He has a true commitment and passion to making the best news and information website for our users.”
