Q&AA: Dawn Ostroff Has Some Thoughts for Video Pivoters

In a year when publishers have been talking about the “pivot to video,” Condé Nast has some hard-won lessons to impart—for example, success in video can have less to do with quick-hit food clips than TV and even movie-length fare. Today, Condé Nast Entertainment is garnering a billion monthly views on its digital videos, Emmy and Oscar nods for its expensive efforts in TV and movies and, since last year, actual profits to top it off.

Investigation Discovery video probes 2014 death of SIU student

CARBONDALE — A popular true-crime television network has sparked renewed interest in the case of a Southern Illinois University Carbondale student who was found dead in the woods three years ago.

Investigation Discovery, which is owned by Discovery Communications LLC, on Wednesday released an eight-minute video on its Facebook page that details the circumstances surrounding the death of Pravin Varughese, a 19-year-old criminal justice major at SIU who disappeared the night of Feb. 12-13, 2014. His body was found five days later in a wooded area off the 1400 block of East Main Street.

Reached by phone on Thursday, Varughese’s mother, Lovely Varughese, of Spring Grove, said Investigation Discovery had contacted her about her son’s case.

“When they came and heard everything, they knew this was going to be something they had to do,” Lovely Varughese said.

She said the network plans to air an hour-long segment on one of

DeOrr’s father disputes claims in new video that he could hurt his child

IDAHO FALLS — The father of missing Idaho Falls toddler DeOrr Kunz Jr. says he would never hurt or do anything to his child, despite what his ex-girlfriend says in a newly released video.

Vernal DeOrr Kunz spoke with EastIdahoNews.com on Monday after learning Jessica Mitchell, his ex-girlfriend, made claims about him in a nearly eight-minute long Investigation Discovery video.

“I believe Deorr’s father could have hurt him,” Mitchell says in the video. “He’s living his life like it’s nothing and I’m falling apart every day.”

Mitchell and Kunz were camping with Mitchell’s grandfather, Robert Walton, and Isaac Reinwand, a friend of Walton’s, at Timber Creek Campground in Lemhi County in July 2015 when DeOrr vanished.

After numerous searches of the campground and surrounding areas, no clues of DeOrr’s whereabouts have ever been found.

In January 2016, former Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman named Kunz and Mitchell as suspects in DeOrr’s disappearance, but the
