Another One Leaves CNN

CNN Producer Josh Rubin is out the door and taking a new gig at The Daily Dot. 

The Daily Dot bills itself as a comprehensive source for original Internet-community news.

Rubin has more than 15 years of experience in national media and joins the Daily Dot as Executive Producer and Managing Director of Video.

Rubin was formerly lead producer for CNN’s Election Express Bus, traveling more than 100,000 miles to cover everything from presidential campaigns to cultural events like Comic-Con. 

“The Daily Dot aspires to be all the things that modern media isn’t,” says Rubin. “In an age of shrinking newsrooms they’re growing their editorial team. While others focus on listicles and content aggregation the Dot focuses on original reporting. The Internet provides journalists with a window into the beating heart of humanity, so I’m joining The Daily Dot because they cover Internet news with journalistic integrity and explore trends without mindlessly following them.”
