Puget Sound Business Journal hires Morgan to cover tech
The Puget Sound Business Journal has hired Rick Morgan to cover tech, finance and transportation.
Morgan writes, “Seattle has been my home since last May when I started covering financial technology for a trade publication called Bank Innovation. I wrote about topics like Wells Fargo’s use of blockchain, Visa’s attempted acquisition of Plaid, and a tiny bank in Georgia that is using new tech to push back against large competitors.
“My career has been a mixture of local news and business reporting.
“Before Bank Innovation, I spent a year on the breaking news desk at CBS4/FOX59, a joint news station in Indianapolis that has an excellent team of seasoned journalists. You learn a lot about news coverage when you’re frantically divvying up reporters and photographers to multiple breaking stories all over town while simultaneously writing web content.
“Before CBS4/FOX59, I interned at CNBC for both its news desk and web department. CNBC taught me that business reporting can be fun, and I was lucky to have editors that let me tackle topics like lab-grown meat and consumer goods made from recycled trash.”
