NYT Tech Columnist to join Yahoo

  • New York Times columnist David Pogue is leaving the publication in order to launch a consumer tech site at Yahoo. 

    After working at New York Times for 13 years, the tech columnist expects to start his new job at Yahoo in the next couple of weeks. 

    "This is a company that's young, revitalized, aggressive - and, under Marissa Mayer's leadership, razor-focused, for the first time in years," he said. 

    Mayer had good things to say about Pogue as well. "He has always been one of my favorite journalists, and I can't think of a better person to make technology more accessible and helpful for the hundreds of millions of people who come to Yahoo every day," she said.
