Afrotech to cover black innovators and entrepreneurs
John Ketchum has been hired as managing editor of Afrotech.com, which will now cover black innovators and entrepreneurs.
Ketchum writes, “My career in media over the past several years has been diverse, to say the least. I’ve worked in public and commercial media. I’ve worked in daily news and investigative shops. I’ve worked for legacy companies and digital first media companies like Vox Media. I want to take a bit of what I’ve learned from each place to make AfroTech the best it can be.
“First and most importantly, I want to build AfroTech into a source people can trust and depend on. Integrity and accuracy are extremely important to me, and that will be reflected in what we produce.
“I want to hear from you. What do you think we should be covering in business and tech? What’s important to you? What are you building? What projects are you working on? Do you know of something cool somebody else is working on? If so, what? Have ideas for stories we should pursue? Hate something we did? Let us know. AfroTech’s community is what makes it great, so we want to work closely with you.
“Lastly, I want to hire people who are passionate about what we’re trying to do. We’re still building out AfroTech.com and we need your help to determine what it will look like. We’re looking for the best talent to help us build this platform from scratch. We’ve already got a couple of gigs open, and more are on the way.”
