David Pogue Leaving NYT To Join Yahoo


David Pogue, personal technology columnist for the New York Times, and an industry veteran of over two decades, is joining Yahoo, where he will be starting a new consumer-tech site. Mr. Pogue was with the NYT for 13 years. 

Yahoo is in a unique position to bring to life great editorial about the technology consumers are using every day,” said Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer in a Tumblr post, talking about the new hire. 

David Pogue: I’ll be writing columns and blog posts each week, of course, and making my goofy videos. But my team and I have much bigger plans, too, for all kinds of online and real-world creations.

Mr. Pogue is also involved with CBS and PBS, and is expected to continue both those commitments. He is also a columnist with Scientific American.
