CNN’s head of social media Samantha Barry leaves to be Glamour’s top editor

Samantha Barry, who served as CNN’s executive producer for social and emerging media at CNN Worldwide, and led all of the network’s bureaus’ social teams, has departed for the Condé Nast publication known for its coverage of fashion and beauty, Glamour magazine, where she will serve as its editor-in-chief.

“I am as humbled by Glamour’s past as I am excited about Glamour’s future,” Barry said in Condé Nast’s statement announcing the hire. “I could not be more proud to take the reigns of an iconic women’s brand at this pivotal moment for all women’s voices.”

She joined CNN in mid-2014.

CNN has named Ashley Codianni as Barry’s replacement, and she is now the EP for social and emerging media.
