CNN Interactive has appointed David Brewer, former managing editor

of BBC News On-line, to act as its managing editor for Europe, the

Middle East and Africa.



Brewer will spearhead a major expansion of CNN Interactive’s activities

in the EMEA region. He will have full editorial control over CNN’s ten

EMEA web sites, as well as developing more for markets such as Germany

and France. He will also develop content for CNN’s telephony and

consumer electronics operations. ’When I started BBC On-line, CNN was

the yardstick by which we measured success. The fact that CNN is focused

on content rather than technology is key,’ said Brewer.



He has 12 years’ experience at the BBC, starting as a reporter before

becoming a political reporter and political news editor. He launched BBC

Online in 1997.



CNN Interactive operates four of its 12 web sites in Europe: in Norway,

Denmark, Sweden and Italy.
