Washington Post tech reporter Reed Albergotti has been hired by news startup Semafor to oversee its technology coverage.
He has been The Post’s consumer electronics reporter, covering Apple and other hardware manufacturers,
Albergotti previously spent years at The Information, where he wrote deeply reported stories on technology companies big and small, from the secretive and well-funded startup Magic Leap to “smart home” device maker Nest. Before joining The Information, he spent 12 years at The Wall Street Journal, covering beats that ranged from sports to white-collar crime.
In 2010, he uncovered emails that detailed doping on Lance Armstrong’s cycling team. His subsequent coverage in The Journal led to a bestselling book, “Wheelmen: Lance Armstrong, The Tour de France and the Greatest Sports Conspiracy Ever,” which he co-authored with Vanessa O’Connell.
