Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, who have been running the All Things Digital tech news site for Dow Jones & Co., write about their plans for their new site, which will launch Jan. 1, 2014.
Mossberg and Swisher write, “Then, starting Jan. 1, 2014, we will still be Web-siting and conference-producing and much more, albeit under a new corporate structure with new partners and investors. While we can’t give any details yet — and there are details — you can assume that this new independent business will be laser-focused on continuing and extending Web journalism and conference journalism with the highest standards. Plus, we will finally be able to have added resources, so we can grow in new and exciting ways, including hiring more journalists and doing much more video.
“In addition, not only will Walt continue his reviews on the new site, but we’ll be adding more reviewers to our current superb group, to praise or condemn even more digital products.
“As for Kara, she will be continuing her famously fierce pursuit of the news, with an ever-growing team of major reporting talents like the ones we are so privileged to work with now.
“And those red chairs — the iconic seats in which every major tech and media leader has been grilled at our conferences for 11 years? We’re keeping them, because we will be holding our usual style of big, news-making conference in 2014, and many others, as well.”
