NY Times hires Bloomberg’s Satariano to cover tech in Europe
Adrienne Carter, deputy business editor of The New York Times, sent out the following announcement on Wednesday:
We’re thrilled to announce that Adam Satariano is coming aboard as our technology correspondent based in London, where he will cover Europe’s vast technology scene.
Adam joins us from Bloomberg, where he was a reporter for 11 years, first in San Francisco covering beats including the environment and the entertainment business, before transitioning to report on Silicon Valley’s technology industry. In 2016, he moved to London to cover European tech for Bloomberg. Prior to Bloomberg, he worked in Washington for Congressional Quarterly.
In his technology coverage, Adam has chronicled the ups-ups-ups of Apple when the company was in its iPhone growth phase, and its transition into the post-Steve Jobs era. He also covered emerging tech trends such as the daily fantasy sports industry, how A.I. is being adopted in finance such as at hedge funds, and the flameouts of high profile start-ups. More recently, he wrote about how Silicon Valley executives are themselves grappling with the issue of tech addiction.
Adam wrote for both Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek, as well as appearing on T.V. and working on videos and podcasts. (He turned his own unfortunate moment of internet infamy into a podcast episode about the deterioration of online privacy.)
He joins at an important moment for Europe and tech. The region is setting the regulatory pace in crimping the power of big tech companies, with rules around data privacy and rulings on antitrust. Other countries are now increasingly looking to Europe as a model for tech policies. And the region is also a hotbed for A.I. innovation, 5G and cybersecurity developments.
Adam, a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and a graduate of UC Santa Cruz, lives with his wife, Nickie, and their two sons in south London. Despite being 5,000 miles away, he remains a committed fan of the San Francisco Giants and the 49ers.
Please extend a warm welcome to Adam, who starts soon.
