Re/code hires BuzzFeed’s Bhuiyan to cover transportation
Tech news site Re/code has hired BuzzFeed transportation reporter Johana Bhuiyan to cover the same beat.
She starts March 7.
Re/codes Kara Swisher writes, “One needs only to read her timely and tough pieces on Uber, the kingpin of the car-sharing market, to see how she approaches the topic. But Uber will not be the only area in her wide-ranging beat — it will also encompass self-driving cars from Apple and Google; efforts by Tesla and Faraday Future to remake the car industry, as stalwarts like Ford and General Motors try to go electric; and the prospects for drones, yachts, planes and whatever the heck Hyperloop is up to.
“In other words, if it moves, Johana will cover it.
“She has been writing about the future of transportation since 2014, most recently for BuzzFeed News. Before that, she was a media reporter covering the business of digital media companies at Politico New York.
“Johana, a born and bred New Yorker, attended Lehigh University, where she studied journalism as well as global and religious studies.”
