Roose joining New York Times as biz columnist
New York Times business editor Ellen Pollock sent out the following announcement on Friday:
Please welcome Kevin Roose, who will join Biz Day as a columnist.
I should probably say rejoin. Some of you will remember Kevin from his earlier stint at Biz Day as a finance reporter. In the last five years he’s had plenty of new adventures. He wrote about young bankers on Wall Street and the start up scene in Silicon Valley at New York magazine. Then he joined Fusion as a senior editor and TV producer, and went on to become a vice president there, overseeing editorial projects and strategy.
Somehow Kevin has found time to write a couple of books . The most recent, “Young Money: Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street’s Post-Crash Recruits,” was a New York TImes bestseller. Over time he’s written for a bunch of magazines, and yes, you’ve seen him on the telly.
Kevin’s reported column will deal with the intersection of business, tech and power. He’ll look at the upheavals in global business that happen when worlds collide. As tech merges with manufacturing and entertainment and telecommunications and everything else, there’s no better time to launch such a column.
Kevin will join us in New York on Monday.
