Gawker Adds Senior Writer

Gawker has named Nitasha Tiku a senior writer. Tiku comes to the site from The New York Observer’s BetaBeat. She had been with the Observer for almost two years. Prior to her time there, Tiku contributed to New York’s Daily Intelligencer.

In a memo obtained by Jim Romenesko, John Cook, editor of Gawker, said of Tiku, “She brings deep knowledge and extensive sources on the tech beat, and so will certainly be helping us deflate egos and mock stupidity and expose fraud in that arena. But she is a prodigiously talented reporter and merciless intellect, and will take on all manner of stories, long and fast, for us.”

You can read Cook’s full note over at Romenesko’s site.
