Kara Swisher, the prominent tech reporter, commentator and Recode co-founder, is leaving her role as columnist and podcaster at the New York Times to return to Vox Media, reports Ashley Carman of Bloomberg News.

Carman reports, “Swisher will host a new interview show at the Vox Media Podcast Network that will serve as a companion to ‘Pivot,’ a business and technology program she’s co-hosted with New York University professor Scott Galloway for nearly four years. The new show is slated to launch in the fall and will be introduced at Vox Media’s upfront event Vox Media Now on June 9.

“Swisher said she’s become ‘very interested’ in owning intellectual property and sharing in the benefits of building a business alongside a partner. That interest, along with wanting to try new formats and create new things, spurred her move.

“‘I’m 60 years old this year, I’ve made a lot of stuff for a lot of people,’ Swisher said in an interview. ‘I want to do what I want to do. I want to make whatever I want to make, and I think that’s a great thing.'”
