VP, Premium Content Video
Jason Farkas is Vice President of Premium Content Video for CNN. Farkas works across CNN Digital's premium vertical channels, including CNNMoney, CNN Media + Entertainment and CNN Style.
He also runs Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter, CNN's Sunday program that examines the role of the media. As executive producer of the show, Farkas has managed the expansion of the program to a multi-platform product that produces a daily e-newsletter and regular digital content for CNNMoney including the NewTube and Headliners video series.
Additionally, Farkas spearheads CNNVR - the network's virtual reality newsgathering and storytelling operation. He led CNN's efforts to be the first media outlet to live stream a major news event in virtual reality with the trailblazing project of capturing and streaming CNN's Republican and Democratic Debates. Praised by critics for "flipping conventional wisdom on its head" and "pushing the brand as technologically savvy," Farkas continues to experiment with VR as a journalism tool for the network.
Prior to joining CNN, Farkas ran afternoon programming on Bloomberg Television, and launched several primetime shows at CNBC.
He's a graduate of Middlebury College, and a New York City native.
