NBC News has hired former NPR executive Vivian Schiller as its chief digital officer.
She will start her new role in mid-July and report to NBC News president Steve Capus.
Schiller will lead the digital strategy for NBC News and MSNBC, responsible for the network's digital extensions on the Web and in mobile as well as its emerging properties.
Schiller was most recently president and CEO of NPR, a position she resigned from in March following a series of political missteps by the public broadcaster. Prior to NPR, she was a senior executive at The New York Times' Web site, leading the day-to-day operations of NYTimes.com.
