Tech author and commentator Kara Swisher is bolting the New York Times for a brand new function with Vox Media, based on reviews that the outstanding columnist later confirmed on Tuesday.
“I’m 60 years old this year, I’ve made a lot of stuff for a lot of people,” Swisher told Bloomberg, which first reported her exit. “I want to do what I want to do. I want to make whatever I want to make, and I think that’s a great thing.”
Swisher is slated to host an interview-centric podcast sequence starting this fall that’s described as a companion manufacturing to “Pivot,” a podcast centered on tech, business and politics that she co-hosts with New York University professor Scott Galloway.
Both exhibits are affiliated with the Vox Media Podcast Network.
Vox Media mentioned the brand new podcast “will help listeners make sense of the moment through spirited, agenda setting conversations with leaders in business and tech, as well as other industries.”
Swisher had been a contributor for The Times since 2018. She can be giving up her function as host of the podcast “Sway.”
The New York Times confirmed Swisher’s exit, including that her final e-newsletter would publish on June 30 and the final episode of her “Sway” podcast can be launched in late July.
Swisher co-founded the know-how information website Recode and later offered the outlet to Vox Media in 2015. After becoming a member of The Times, she continued to host the “Pivot” podcast.
