Andrew Demaria upped to CNN Digital International VP & managing editor

MUMBAI: CNN Digital has elevated Andrew Demaria from CNN Digital Asia executive producer to CNN Digital International vice president and managing editor. As part of the new role, he will be responsible for leading all editorial efforts and new initiatives across CNN’s digital platforms and CNN Arabic. He will officially take over the new role at the beginning of April. 


While Demaria has spent the last few years in Hong Kong; as part of the new role, he will relocate to London in the coming months. 


In addition to being a senior leader for CNN Digital, CNN International and beyond, Demaria will work closely with CNN International newsgathering TV and digital senior vice president Deborah Rayner’s newsgathering editors and managers around the world, thus leading the network to more distinctive digital work on the biggest stories of the day.


“He will also collaborate with the sales teams to generate features and specials that appeal to both audiences and advertisers. He'll also help identify new audiences and opportunities in new markets, working with teams across CNN Worldwide to seize what we all believe is a huge global digital potential for CNN across mobile, social and desktop,” said CNN Digital editor in chief Meredith Artley.


Demaria was earlier the CNN Travel editor in chief, where he launched and led a vertical that showcased creative work produced in five languages resulting in gangbuster growth.

“Demaria's scope and teams span the world. To that end, he will be spotted very often in London, Atlanta/NYC, Dubai and other corners, including Hong Kong, where he will be based for the next several months as he prepares to relocate to London,” added Artley.
