The former entertainment chief for the CW network, Dawn Ostroff, is in talks for a new position, the New York Post reports. The new job is with publishing house Conde Nast.
According to sources, the new position would involve working on the publisher’s initiatives in TV and online video.
Indications are that Conde Nast is interested in expanding its video operations. The company, which publishes Vanity Fair and Vogue, already produces some Web video, including productions associated with its fashion shoots and Oscars parties, the story points out.
The story adds: “Conde Nast wouldn’t be the first publishing house to draft TV talent. Hearst tapped former NBC boss Scott Sassa to run its TV interests, spanning ESPN and the A&E TV Networks, and its new joint venture with reality show producer Mark Burnett.
Ostroff stepped down earlier this year from her position with CW, after running the network since 2006.
