BuzzFeed brings Millie Tran on board

Jan 19, 2015

Millie Tran is the latest addition to the growing mobile app team at BuzzFeed News, where she has been tasked with building and shaping their forthcoming app as well as writing a daily email briefing. Tran was most recently editorial coordinator for the American Press Institute, crafting its daily email newsletter "Need to Know" while also covering media and journalism.

"Just sent off my last @AmPress Need to Know newsletter," Tran shared on Jan. 7, followed by this tweet six days later: "First day at @BuzzFeedNews. Nonstop and amazing."

Her new colleagues seem psyched. "Today is a pretty darn good day. Why? @millie starts @BuzzFeedNews! Sign-up for a new news newsletter (3x fast!)" reveals product lead Noah Chestnut.

Tran starts at the same time as another new recruit, Sam Kirkland, whose job move we reported last month.

App editor Stacy-Marie Ishmael marvels, "Both @samkirkland and @millie are in the @BuzzFeed office and this is just a great day."

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
