Fortune.com ME Roth leaving for LinkedIn
Dan Roth, who oversees Fortune‘s online presence, resigned Wednesday for a job at LinkedIn, he announced on Twitter.
Previously, Roth was a senior writer at Wired magazine, where he wrote about Google founder Larry Page’s quest for cell phone dominance; Brian Roberts’ attempts to bring Comcast into the Internet age; and how radical transparency is the only solution to averting the next Great Recession. His 2008 cover story on Shai Agassi’s electric car revolution was a finalist at the Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism.
Roth joined Wired in 2007 from Condé Nast Portfolio, where he was the first writer and one of its founding staffers. Roth also served as a senior writer and editor at Fortune for eight years.
Roth moved to New York in 1996 to become a reporter for Forbes. He got his start in journalism at the Triangle Business Journal in Raleigh after graduating from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
