GigaOM | Ad Age

Andy Carvin will join First Look Media, Mathew Ingram reports: "This feels like a great opportunity to see what it would look like for a news organization to be engaged in collaborating with the public on a more fundamental level across its operations,” Carvin told him.

"Carvin also said that his background with NPR is likely to help with this aspect of what First Look Media wants to do, since public radio is all about community engagement and forming a bond with listeners, right down to the “crowdfunding” approach of pledge drives," Ingram writes. "He said he didn’t know whether crowdfunding would be a part of First Look’s business model."

Carvin, who took a buyout from NPR, will join the Pierre Omidyar-backed venture part-time until he finishes his research at the Tow Center, Ingram writes.

Michael Rosen will be FLM's chief revenue officer, Michael Sebastian writes.
