Connie Loizos has been named editor in chief of TechCrunch.
Loizos writes, “First, with this new appointment, we’re going to lean even more heavily into what we do best, which is to cover the rapidly expanding startup and VC scene. It’s a world I know well as the founder of StrictlyVC, a popular daily newsletter that Yahoo has also acquired as part of this transition and which will continue hitting subscribers’ inboxes daily. Going forward, we’re going to continue telling you what, but we’re going to be diving more deeply into the who, why, and how.
“Second, you’re going to start seeing even more original reporting in TechCrunch. We’ll still catch you up on some of the bigger stories that you need to know, but much more of our time is going to be spent finding stories that no one else is telling you.
