Dawn Ostroff, the former entertainment chief of The CW, has been hired as the president of Conde Nast Entertainment, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
TVWeek reported late last month that Ostroff was in talks with the publishing house. She will be in charge of developing, creating, producing and distributing original television, film and digital initiatives based on Conde Nast brands, the piece notes.
"Dawn’s extensive experience in cable and digital entertainment, coupled with her strategic expertise, makes her the perfect choice to oversee the launch of this new venture," said Conde Nast President Robert A. Sauerberg Jr., the piece notes.
Ostroff helped create the CW and ran the broadcast network from 2006 until earlier this year, the piece notes. The network developed several successful TV shows during her years there, including "Gossip Girl" and "The Vampire Diaries."
