Jenna Bordelon and James Hibberd have been elevated to new positions supporting digital operations at The Hollywood Reporter.

Bordelon has been named managing editor of THR.com, where she will be responsible for day-to-day oversight of digital operations, particularly video coverage.

She will continue to report to Andrew Wallenstein, editor of digital media.

Hibberd, who will continue to serve as senior TV reporter, adds the title of senior online editor. He will play a key role in shaping editorial strategy for THR.com's blogs, a component of the Web site where he has distinguished himself with his TV-themed The Live Feed.

Hibberd continues to report to TV editor Nellie Andreeva.

"I am delighted to have Jenna and James take their work to the next level and fuel continued innovation from our digital platforms," Wallenstein said. "They've already done so much to drive explosive growth at THR.com as a next-generation global brand."

During the past 12 months, THR has introduced a string of digital products and initiatives that have broadened its reach and impact domestically and internationally.

They include the THReviews portal and THR Mobile Boxoffice, which have allowed the newspaper to better serve its audience while providing innovative solutions for clients. (partialdiff)
