Al Jazeera America: Andrea Stone, Tony Karon To Oversee Digital

In the latest of a series of announcements marking its preparations to launch a new cable-news outlet in 2013, Al Jazeera America has hired Andrea Stone and Tony Karon as senior online executive producers for Al Jazeera’s digital team.

The pair will be responsible for managing both U.S. and global coverage for the channel’s website and other digital platforms , and determine the overall editorial direction for the site. Both will be based in New York.

Stone recently worked as the senior national correspondent for The Huffington Post, and has covered national news for nearly 30 years. Prior to The Huffington Post, Stone was the Washington bureau chief for AOL News and a reporter for USA Today, where she covered national news, the Pentagon, Congress, the Middle East, presidential and congressional politics and business.

Karon comes to Al Jazeera America from Time Magazine, where for the last 12 years he was senior editor for its website. Prior to TIME, Karon was deputy editor for Fox News online, where he oversaw a team of editors covering breaking and business news.

Al Jazeera America is in the midst of what executives say is a hiring spree, committed to bringing on 700 staffers and opening 12 bureaus around the U.S. The network recently hired Ali Velshi from CNN to create a daily business-news program. Al Jazeera America struck a deal to buy the cabler known as Current TV for $500 million in January.
