Why Anthony De Rosa Is Joining Circa

Reuters’ star social media editor Anthony De Rosa is leaving for a new role: editor-in-chief of fledgling news startup Circa. Circa is a news app (cofounded by Arsenio Santos, journalism crowdfunding platform founder David Cohn, Ben Huh of I Can Has Cheezburger fame, and Matt Galligan) that aggregates and repackages news from around the web in a made-for-mobile format: Stories are broken down into “atoms” of information intended to help mobile readers easily consume news as it occurs throughout the day. Some of the app’s most intriguing features are the ability to “follow” an ongoing story and the app’s ability to un-bold the headlines of stories readers have already clicked on.
