Dept of Building Momenteum: Knight Ridder Digital hires new Chief Marketing Office

KRD, topping off a year of smart moves, announced today that they have hired Anna Zornosa, formerly of, Pointcast, and most recently email publisher Topica, as chief marketing officer.
According to the release, as CEO at Topica, Zornosa moved the organization from free and advertising-supported to paid services. As SVP at Networks, she developed integrated marketing strategy and managed relationships with 20 affiliated TV, book and magazine prpoerties.
There are so few women in senior positions, especially in the online newspaper business–it is good to see that KRD has made such a dynamic hire…and interesting to watch where she will help the business grow.
