What does our department do?

The Content Development group at CNN Digital has three primary responsibilities: sales integration, franchises, and partnerships. Sales integration requires both offense and defense on major initiatives. On offense, Content Development proactively takes editorial ideas to our partners in sales for packing in the marketplace; on defense, Content Development helps facilitate the conversation from the marketplace through sales and back to editorial. Franchise development is the prioritization of the products and/or people of highest potential editorial and marketplace value, and may include any or all of the following: television programming, a digital team and daily presence, newsletters, podcasts, a video series or special, and events (examples include The Point with Chris Cillizza, Boss Files with Poppy Harlow, or Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter). Partnership development is finding ways to work with the people and organizations outside of CNN with whom we want to do new or more business (examples include The Axe Files with David Axelrod and with Anthony Bourdain and Roads + Kingdoms).
