BuzzFeed has a new executive editor of news, and it's Shani Hilton. Most recently deputy editor in chief, Hilton has also served as a senior editor and deputy executive editor with the Buzz.

"[S]o, i have a cool new job running the day-to-day of @BuzzFeedNews," she announced on Twitter, adding, "currently feeling like a combination of lorde, beyoncé and kourtney kardashian."

"Much deserved: Buzzfeed's Shani Hilton (@shani_o) gets bigger role," colleague Adrian Carrasquillo shared this post.
