Technology News Site Tecca Adds Two More Reporters

On the heels of reaching the one million unique visitors plateau in September, LA based technology news site Tecca has announced some new hires. Ross Rubin comes aboard as contrinbuting editor while Emmy Award nominated Jennifer Jolly (pictured) is the new tech lifestyle editor. She will remain based in San Francisco.

The site bills itself as the largest tech destination catering to women. Sure enough, a quick glance at the home page reveals recent stories with titles like “Cook Up a Storm with Six Helpful iPad Apps” and “How Can You Blend Computer Time with Your Family?

The Best Buy funded Tecca, which is headquartered in Venice, has managed all this in just its first year of operation. The site is slick, easy to navigate and well-edited, so there’s no telling where this solidly funded operation might be sitting come September 2012.

Rubin is the executive director of industry analysis for the NPD Group, sits on the advisory board of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and is an extensively published author. Alaska native Jolly for her part has nearly two decades of media experience. She was a regular contributor to an ABC-TV daily talk show in San Francisco and has appeared on other programs such as Fox & Friends, Rachael Ray and The Daily Buzz.
