Media consultant BEAU FRIEDLANDER has joined AIR AMERICA MEDIA as Website Editor-in-Chief. FRIEDLANDER, most recently President of his own FRIEDLANDER AND ASSOCIATES "progressive media consulting group," replaces SAM SEDER, the network host and comedy writer who is taking on other online duties with the network.
"As AIR AMERICA continues to grow our multimedia offerings, BEAU is the ideal candidate to lead the charge online," said AIR AMERICA CEO BENNETT ZIER. "With more than 20 years of publishing, media and consulting experience, he brings a versatile and progressive voice to our interactive initiatives."
"With SAM SEDER transitioning out of this role and focusing his time and energy on new online initiatives, BEAU is the perfect person to fill his shoes," said AIR AMERICA SVP of Programming BILL HESS. "He’s not afraid to take risks, and is an essential element as we take AIR AMERICA MEDIA to the next level."
FRIEDLANDER said, "SAM has worked hard to make a name for airamerica.com, and I’m looking forward to continuing his work."
