BETSY MORGAN, the former Chief of the liberal website THE HUFFINGTON POST, has joined conservative GLENN BECK's company to oversee his new website, THE BLAZE. Former PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS Pres. KRAIG KITCHIN has also joined the website
THE NEW YORK TIMES reports MORGAN "will become President of THE BLAZE, a four-month-old site intended to curate news articles and opinion pieces of special interest to Mr. BECK's conservative audience."
KITCHIN, who runs management company SOUND MIND LLC, will continue in that venture in addition to THE BLAZE, writes MEDIABISTRO.COM.
"I believe in THE BLAZE, and see its loyal readership beginning to emerge," said KITCHIN. "It will offer countless national advertisers an environment to connect with online readers and sell products and services as a result.".
