Is CNBC Making a New Social Media Push?

Talking Biz News’ Chris Roush posted a new rec for CNBC…

CNBC’s Social Media Desk is responsible for maintaining the business networks’ presence across all social platforms while also playing a critical breaking news function in our newsroom. We are looking for an experienced social media editor to help lead our social media team and expand our digital footprint.

This candidate will be expected to manage social editorial needs of both broadcast and digital, especially at times of breaking news. The candidate will also liaise with daytime shows and advise on the development of social media campaigns around special projects and initiatives. Given the dynamic nature of the role, we are looking for a candidate who is able to work flexible hours.

In addition to day-to-day management of the social media team, this candidate should have a background in social analytics and regularly provide analysis of key performance metrics.

It’s unclear to me if this is a new position or an old position that recently became vacant.
