CBS News has a new lineup in its executive suites, with the creation of a new strategic management team by by incoming CBS News President Susan Zirinsky.
Three top executives have new assignments: Kimberly Godwin was named executive VP of news for the division, Charles Pavlounis received the expanded role of executive VP of business development and chief financial officer, and Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews was named executive VP of strategic professional development.
Godwin has held a number of key editorial leadership positions since joining CBS News in 2007, most recently serving as vice president of news.
Pavlounis, who joined CBS News in 2015, has been senior VP and chief financial officer.
Ciprian-Matthews, another CBS News veteran, has been executive VP of news since 2018.
“News is very much a team sport. It is critical to have a strategic, collaborative leadership team as we reset the CBS News of today into a leading news organization of the future,” said Zirinsky. “Kim, Charlie and Ingrid are dedicated to our mission. Each brings a wide-range of talents and skills that immediately makes CBS News a stronger organization.”
