Wall Street Journal names new personal tech team
New York—The Wall Street Journal announced it has named four journalists to a new personal technology reporting team, part of a larger expansion of technology coverage. The coverage will be led by two columnists, Geoffrey A. Fowler, a 13-year veteran of reporting and editing at the Journal who has been covering technology since 2009, and Joanna Stern, who was most recently technology editor and product reviewer at ABC News. Wilson Rothman, most recently a technology and science editor at NBC News Digital, becomes personal technology editor, and Nathan Olivarez-Giles, formerly a reporter at the Verge, becomes a personal tech blogger and web producer.
"Our commitment to deeper coverage of technology and its impact on business and the world is reflected in this expanded personal-technology team," said Gerard Baker, editor in chief, in a statement. Earlier this year, All Things D co-founder Walt Mossberg, who has been the Journal's leading personal technology columnist for more than 20 years, and co-founder Kara Swisher announced they would leave the Wall Street Journal and All Things D to start a new venture.
