Refinery29′s Lea Goldman and News UK’s Tiffanie Darke are both joining A+E Networks in newly created editor-in-chief positions.

The pair will report to Sean Cohan, president, international and digital media, and Amanda Hill, chief marketing officer.

Goldman (right) will serve as the editor-in-chief of Lifetime and FYI. She had previously served as editorial director for digital publisher and multi-channel network Refinery29, and executive editor at Marie Claire. 

Darke (left) was the former content director from News UK where she managed the content across its three titles, The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times. She’ll be heading up the A+E and History brands.

In their new roles, they’ll be responsible for bolstering content creations and marketing efforts across their portfolios. They’re charged with creating a brand-focused editorial strategy and facilitating content creation for on-air, digital and social platforms, according to a release.

“In today’s competitive, fragmented media environment, we need to build brands that truly connect to culture, are on-going and meaningful part of our audiences lives and are therefore also clearly consistent across all platforms,” said Hill in a statement.
