CNN poaches Kalita from LA Times

May 31, 2016

CNN has done it again: this time the network has snatched up S. Mitra Kalita, managing editor for digital strategy at the LA Times. Later this summer Kalita will don the lofty title of vice president of digital programming for CNN.

"As Tribune struggles to innovate, it loses 1 of its top innovators, with Mitra Kalita going to CNN," reports Ken Doctor of Newsonomics renown.

"Slowly and quietly, @CNN building one of the most formidable groups of digital innovators & talent in all of media," observes Vivian Schiller.

"I knew it was only a matter of time until @mitrakalita was lured back to NY," declares New York Observer's Kara Bloomgarden-Smoke.

No tweets yet from Kalita herself, but as you can see, fellow media members had plenty to say!
