Joshua Krane, G4 senior vice president of interactive and new media, has announced that Billy Berghammer has been appointed G4TV.com's director of gaming editorial. In his new role, Berghammer oversees gaming content for all of G4’s nonlinear platforms, including G4TV.com, G4 on Demand, G4 Podcasts, G4 Mobile, as well as the network’s Wii and PS3 browser-based content platforms. Many of you are familiar with Billy's work as managing editor for Game Informer's GI.com and the founder of Planet GameCube.
So what does this mean for you? Well, expect more exclusive content, breaking news and interviews on G4TV.com and all the aforementioned products. The team has tremendous things planned for you in 2009 and with Billy leading the way, I'm confident that you'll enjoy all the great content.
“Billy’s outstanding experience coupled with his strong relationships within the gaming industry make him the perfect fit to lead G4TV.com,” said Krane. “As we continue to expand videogame content on G4TV.com, Billy will play an integral role in shaping the web site and maximizing opportunities for gamers, publishers and developers.”
I'm thrilled that Billy will be joining G4. He's an excellent person and one of the finest editors in the business (though he's also one of the worst liar's dice players in the history of Buddha Bar). Please join me in giving Billy a warm G4 welcome!
