Etan Horowitz is CNN’s mobile editor, serving as the editorial lead for all of CNN’s mobile products. In this role he sets both the day-to-day and long-term strategy for how to best present CNN’s great content across a variety of mobile platforms. He is passionate about making sure that CNN’s mobile products are not just a syndication service of the desktop website, but rather unique experiences that meet the needs of mobile news consumers.
He joined CNN in 2010, as a digital media producer for CNN International TV and played a key role in coverage of the Haiti earthquake, the 2010 World Cup, the Arab Spring, the Royal Wedding and other major news events. Horowitz came to CNN from the Orlando Sentinel, where he worked as a reporter, technology columnist, blogger and social media coordinator.
Throughout his career, Horowitz has combined his passion for technology with a love of journalism. As a tech columnist, he reviewed the original iPhone, the original Kindle and many other pioneering products. In 2008, he organized one of the first Twitter crowd-sourced journalism projects, asking his followers to tweet about iPhone 3G availability in Orlando.
Horowitz graduated with a degree in journalism from the University of Maryland. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife Daphne Sashin – a producer for CNN.com’s iReport – and their 20-month-old son Jack. His first name is pronounced “AY-tahn.”
