Tech reporter Thielman hired by Talking Points Memo
Sam Thielman, a tech reporter laid off earlier this spring at The Guardian, has been hired by TalkingPointsMemo.com.
Editor and publisher Josh Marshall writes:
Sam Thielman, most recently of The Guardian, is coming aboard as an investigative reporter to work on the new investigative desk. At the Guardian, Sam did a wide range of investigative stories, from Russian hacking to tech to biz. He will be based in the New York office and will be doing the kind of deep, original reporting that sticks close to the news of the day that we want to make a hallmark of the new team. Sam starts the last week of June.
We plan to expand the investigations desk to three to four reporters as soon as possible and then we will consider more additions after that based on a number of factors. We hope to announce more additions in the coming weeks.
Thielman had been at the Guardian since April 2015. Before that, he spent three years and three months at Adweek, where he covered cable and streaming video. He previously covered cable television for Variety.
Thileman has a master’s degree from Columbia University and a bachelor’s degree from Samford University.
