SABEW names new board member
Chris Peacock, executive editor and vice president of CNNMoney.com, has been named to the Society of American Business Editors and Writers board effective Aug. 31.
Peacock will fill the term of Bill Choyke, who is leaving the board, until the next board election at the societyâ€™s annual conference in March.
â€œChris brings to the board a strong background in online business journalism as editor of CNNMoney.com and before that in overseeing online content at Fortune Group Online,â€ said Greg McCune, SABEWâ€™s president. â€œHe has strong links to broadcast through CNN, and to magazines through Fortune and Money — both areas where SABEW needs to strengthen its presence.â€
At CNN, Peacock is responsible for the financial siteâ€™s content strategy and product. He works closely with the business and technology teams to identify new opportunities for the CNNMoney.com brand. The site attracts more than 8 million unique visitors a month, according to Nielsen.
Peacock joined Fortune Group Online in 2001 and served as executive editor and vice president there, overseeing all of the groupâ€™s online editorial content.
