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.
