Adam Soldinger is joining The Huffington Post as VP in charge of video programming and operations, the AOL-owned media company confirmed today.
Soldinger comes to The Huffington Post after a five-month stint as head of business development and strategic partnerships for Say Media’s digital magazine publishing platform Tempest. Prior to that, he spent a year and a half as VP of programming, development and distribution for Complex Media, a digital platform targeting young male consumers.
During his time at Complex, Soldinger worked directly with Nathan Brown, then the company’s GM of video, who now serves as SVP and GM of video at the The Huffington Post.
Founded in 2005 as a news aggregation website, The Huffington Post has been ramping up its original video production recently, partnering with BroadbandTV to create the online video news network Outspeak last month and hiring Magnet Media’s Drea Bernardi earlier this week.
