David Hudson joined the Motion Picture Association as senior director of digital content and social media, reports Multichannel News.  Hudson comes from Accountable US, but his resume is a varied one, and he is no stranger to MPA. Hudson was with Precision Strategies back in 2016, the communications firm that helped promote MPA’s diversity initiative in the wake of #OscarsSoWhite.  His resume also includes the Center for American Progress, and the Obama White House, where he was associate director for content, managing, among other things, the We the People petition platform and working on interactive content for WhiteHouse.gov.

Nahigian Strategies and Carr Companies opened Big Whig Media, which is billed as centrally located a few steps from the White House and a mile from 16 federal agencies at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel. The facility will provide “top-of-the-line editing services to enable digital, television, radio, and podcast production, Big Whig will offer associations, businesses and organizations of all sizes the opportunity to launch and maintain their digital content and broadcasting needs.”
