Yahoo News Lands Rob Walker

Yahoo News just landed a pretty big name for its tech coverage. Longtime New York Times Magazine contributor and editor Rob Walker will be joining the site as its newest tech columnist.

Walker wrote the “Consumed” column for NYT Mag for seven years between 2004 and 2011 and created the Ad Report Card column for Slate.

We especially love his book Letters From New Orleans, however, which he published just before Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.

Walker will report to Yahoo News deputy editor Chris Suellentrop.

Yahoo News Hires Its First White House Correspondent

Longtime Agence France-Press political writer Olivier Knox has joined Yahoo News as the site’s first White House correspondent. Knox spent more than a decade at AFP and covered the White House for eight years. He will report to politics editor Chris Suellentrop.

Interesting, given Yahoo’s fairly meteoric growth in news content production in recent years, they’re just now getting a White House correspondent. Here’s hoping an enterprise investigative team comes next.

Knox, obviously, will be based in DC and will formally start his new job on February 13.

Yahoo News Names First White House Correspondent

Olivier Knox, most recently a Congressional Correspondent for Agence France-Press (AFP), has been named Yahoo News’ first White House Correspondent. According to The Cutline, Knox has worked at AFP for over 10 years covering politics and, for a majority of his time there, the White House.

At Yahoo News, Knox will report to Chris Suellentrop, the site’s Politics Editor.

“I am thrilled to be joining the team covering politics at Yahoo News and truly honored to serve as the first White House correspondent,” Knox told The Cutline. “It’s a great opportunity.”

Knox will be based in Washington and his first day is February 13.
