Spotify’s previous chief content officer, Stefan Blom, came from a music-industry and telco background and left the company in January after a largely unsuccessful move into video, which was announced as a growth area with great fanfare when former VH1 chief Tom Calderone joined as Spotify’s head of content partnerships in March 2016. Calderone left just 15 months later after its original video shows, including the Russell Simmons-produced “Traffic Jams,” failed to catch on.Ostroff was previously entertainment president of The CW network and from 2002 to 2006 was president of the UPN Network, where she developed the reality series “America’s Next Top Model.” She headed programming at Lifetime from 1996-2002.Later on Tuesday, Condé Nast Entertainment announced that it will be led on an interim basis by Sahar Elhabashi, COO of the video entertainment division, until the company hires a replacement for Ostroff. UPDATED: Spotify, the world’s leading music-streaming service, has named Dawn Ostroff as its new Chief Content Officer. According to the announcement, Ostroff, who was previously president of entertainment at Conde Nast, will be based at Spotify’s New York office and will lead all aspects of its content partnerships across music, audio and video. Specifically, she will oversee the company’s Shows & Editorial (including playlists, headed by Nick Holmsten), Studios & Video (headed by Courtney Holt), Creator Services (Troy Carter), Creator Marketplace (Charlie Hellman), and Content Operations departments (Sam Young).At Conde Nast Entertainment — which Ostroff cofounded upon joining the parent company in 2011 — she was tasked with developing film, TV and digital products from its brands, which included such magazines as the New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Details and others.

Yoga along with words like Facebook and Twitter are among the top fifteen most popular words in the British society, say scientists who found that the internet age has had a massive influence on the English language. The need to communicate with a wider-world coupled with a move away from the cosy, close-knit communities of the 90s has dramatically changed the way British people speak over the last two decades, researchers said.The study, by Lancaster University and Cambridge University Press in the UK, looked at the most characteristic words of informal chit-chat in today’s Britain. The internet age has had a massive influence on the words we use, researchers said. While in the 1990s we were captivated by ‘cassettes’, today email, Internet, Facebook, Google, YouTube, website, Twitter, texted, iPhone and iPad all top the bill.

Words like ‘permed’, ‘comb’ and ‘tar rah’ have fallen out of popularity, according to the study. ‘Awesome’, which replaced ‘marvellous’ in an earlier study, is still popular and now joins ‘massively’ in the top 15. The word ‘croquet’ has taken a hit along with expressions such as ‘mucking’, ‘whatsername’, ‘golly’ and ‘matey’.

An earlier study by the team compared existing data from the 1990s to two million words of then newly collected data from the year 2012. The researchers have now collected more data and compared the same 1990s collection to a bigger collection comprising five million words spanning 2012-2015. At the end of this year, they will publicly release 11 million words spanning 2012-2016.Researcher and language expert Robbie Love, from at Lancaster University in the UK, has compiled the top 15 most popular words from the 1990s which have since declined the most drastically and the top 15 words not around in the in the 1990s – which are hugely popular today. “These findings suggest the things that are most important to British society are indeed reflected in the amount we talk about them,” said Love. “New technologies like Facebook have really captured our attention, to the extent that, if we’re not using it, we’re probably talking about it,” he said. “The new data has shed light on some older words which, similar to “marvellous” and “marmalade” in the previous study, appear to have fallen out of fashion in the intervening years,” he added. “The study provides a sense of the way society has expanded since the early 1990s and the end of the offline era. Our priorities are moving away from what is happening on our doorsteps,” Love said.
