In her new role, Tam will oversee Bloomberg’s West Coast tech team.

Bloomberg to Fill Giant Tech Coverage Void

Exciting news for those of you who can’t find a tech site that you like, despite there being about 57 million of them out there already: Bloomberg News is expanding its coverage with a new vertical and two new tech blogs.

According to Fast Company, the vertical will launch at some point today and be overseen by Tom Giles, Bloomberg News’ Technology Team Leader. The site will also be helmed mostly by San Franciso-based editors and writers.

The two blogs — both in a soft launch as of now — will be edited by Marcus Chan. The names? Tech Blog and Tech Deals. Absolute craziness.

How anyone can possibly still be searching for additional tech sites to read is beyond us, but hey, maybe this expansion will work for Bloomberg. It’s not like the company has to worry about losing money on something that fails.
