Buzzfeed's Steinberg Collects Mail CEO/NA Post

Jon Steinberg, who was president/COO at Buzzfeed, is now North America chief for MailOnline, the No. 1 English language website.

The former CNBC Squawk Alley contributor held the Buzzfeed COO post for the last four years, establishing business relationships with high-profile brands such as Google and Facebook.

Steinberg also worked at Google, Majestic Research and Booz Allen Hamilton.

MailOnline publisher Martin Clarke called Steinberg “the perfect person to lead the charge as we grow and mature as a product in the US.”

Britain’s Daily Mail & General Trust owns MailOnline.

Baquet Treated for Cancer

Dean Baquet, winner of the New York Times power struggle that resulted in the ouster of Jill Abramson, the paper’s first woman executive editor, had a malignant tumor removed from his kidney on Saturday.

He sent an email today to share the news with staffers.

Baquet will spend a week away from the NYT, to help recover from the operation.

He described the procedure as a “minimally invasive, completely successful surgery.”

Doctors gave Baquet “an excellent prognosis,” according to his message.

The 57-year-old editor promised to keep-in-touch with management and report on any new developments.

He was managing editor before sliding into the top post on May 14.
