New York magazine announced Monday that the “Pivot” podcast from Vox Media is joining its stable, and that co-host Kara Swisher will be an editor at large for the magazine.

“Pivot” launched as a weekly podcast in 2018, and quickly found an audience looking for original insights, critiques of power and the powerful, and the place to go for business and investment insights and new ways to understand today’s business and tech landscape.

As part of New York magazine “Pivot” will continue to publish Tuesdays and Fridays, and will explore growing further into live and virtual events.

“Kara is someone who lived permanently on our wish list of writers to engage, and it’s thrilling to be able to welcome her into the New York magazine family,” said David Haskell, editor in chief of New York magazine.

Swisher will contribute magazine features in addition to co-hosting “Pivot.” She co-founded Recode and, before that, co-produced and co-hosted The Wall Street Journal’s “D: All Things Digital” conference series (now called the Code Conference) with Walt Mossberg starting in 2003.
