Walt Mossberg and David Pogue Chart New Courses
This is momentous.
A month ago, we found out that Walt Mossberg, along with Kara Swisher, are leaving The Wall Street Journal and AllThingsD.
“For years, Dow Jones/The Wall Street Journal has enjoyed working with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher… however, after discussions, both parties have decided not to renew the agreement,” said Gerard Baker, editor in chief of Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal.
Mr. Mossberg and Ms. Swisher are in negotiations with investors and media companies, including Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, for their next partnership, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Now David Pogue is leaving The New York Times for Yahoo.
But 13 years is a long time to stay in one place; we all thrive on new experiences. So I was intrigued when Yahoo invited me to help build a new consumer-tech site. Actually, “site” doesn’t even cover it. 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.
