After 10 years at Microsoft, Cameron Death is moving to Burbank, Calif. to work on “ad-funded online programming” as vice president of digital content at NBC Digital Entertainment.
NBC just announced Death’s hiring.
A former newspaper manager being groomed for leadership at Knight Ridder’s St. Paul Pioneer Press, Death moved west in 1997 to join Microsoft’s now-defunct Sidewalk arts and entertainment listings venture. Two years later he moved to MSN, where he most recently led the U.S. Branded Entertainment and Experiences team.
I wonder if more Microsoft ad execs will take other jobs as the aQuantive merger is ironed out.
