The tv presenter and journalist Cherno Jobatey will begin his new role as Editor-at-Large at FOCUS Online, Germany's most widely read news portal (AGOF daily digital facts 2019-08), with immediate effect.
In this role he will work closely with the editorial board around Florian Festl to promote the constructive orientation of the news portal.
Jobatey will host "Talking Good" show
Jobatey has had strong ties to the publishing house BurdaForward (including CHIP and FOCUS Online) for more than five years. He worked in-house until the spring of 2019 as publisher of the Huffington Post Germany.
One of Jobatey's priorities as Editor-at-Large will be the regular "Talking Good" show. Starting in October, the talk will be produced regularly in Munich and Berlin. It will be streamed across all FOCUS Online platforms.
FOCUS Online’s editor-in-chief Festl comments: "I have known Cherno for years and am looking forward to working with him. His competence for video formats is second to none. He always manages to create an excellent framework for honest and inspiring dialogue, which is ideal for a constructive talk-show.”
"I look forward to continuing to work with BurdaForward and to using the experience gained at HuffPost in-house," adds Jobatey.
