On the Move: Hires at Deezer and Midroll

On the Move tracks hires, promotions, and other notable personnel changes within the online audio industry.

Deezer has hired Chris Baughen as its vice president of content and formats. Baughen joins the streaming company from Radio X. “There are many content opportunities in this space and I don’t believe that anyone has really scratched the surface yet,” he said. “Deezer is perfectly placed to take advantage of this situation and elbow our way to the front of the pack.”

Podcast company Midroll Media has made a few changes within its leadership team. First, digital media veteran Korri Kolsea is the new head of sales, replacing Chief Revenue Officer Lex Friedman. Eric Spiegelman is the new vice president of business affairs. And Peter Clowney is the new executive editor, joining from his role as head editor at Gimlet Media.
