I'm also pleased to announce that Keith Esparros will assume the position of Director, Content, effective immediately. Over the past year, Keith has spearheaded the Content Center transformation of our newsroom and his leadership on this project was recently recognized with the division President's Award. In his new role, Keith will report to Steve and will partner with him to expand our competitive growth of news and information across all platforms.
With this new structure, along with the vision and expertise of both Steve and Keith, we will come to fully realize a true multi-platform Content Center. Please join me in congratulating both of them.
