Veteran BusinessWeek senior writer Steve Hamm will now be doing PR for a company he used to cover: IBM. Hamm announced today, via blog post and Twitter, that he’ll join IBM PR as a communications strategist and content creator.
Hamm’s blog post notes the realities behind the move:
I say goodbye to journalism reluctantly, but, the way I see it, journalism left me rather than the other way around. There isn’t much of a business model these days for the kind of serious, in-depth journalism that I practiced. Meanwhile, the communications revolution beckons.
