Farber returns as CNET.com editor
by Chris Roush
Dan Farber, who was editor of technology news site CNET.com in 2008 and 2009, has returned to the top spot after a stint as editor of CBSNews.com, reports Peter Kafka of AllThingsD.
Kafka writes, “CNET editor-in-chief Scott Ard will stay on at the company, but will focus on CNET’s reviews, which he had overseen prior to his promotion in 2009. He’ll also oversee other new products, the company told its staff today.
“Farber, meanwhile, will continue to hold on to his current job, overseeing editorial for CBSNews.com. And Larry Dignan continues to oversee the unit’s ZDNet and TechRepublic blog networks.
“The org chart shuffle is many ways a reset to CNET’s state prior to its acquisition by CBS in the summer of 2008. It’s also one of several moves that CBS Interactive head Jim Lanzone has made since he joined the company in March, after selling the network his Clicker.com.”
