Re/code names Frommer its editor in chief
Tech news site Re/code has named Dan Frommer its new editor in chief, replacing Kenneth Li, who has left the organization.
Brian Stelter of CNNMoney.com writes, “Dan Frommer, the tech editor at Quartz, is the new Re/code editor. Starting next Monday he will run the operation and report to Swisher, who remains executive editor.
“Kenneth Li, who has been the editor in chief since Re/code launched in early 2014, left the organization last week.
“Frommer is Re/code’s highest-profile hire since the site came into the Vox fold last spring. He called the role a ‘can’t-miss opportunity.’
“Frommer will oversee Re/code’s move onto Vox’s much-vaunted publishing platform, Chorus, which will happen before the site’s annual Code Conference in late May.
“Swisher said in a telephone interview that her priorities are events like Code; a video programming strategy for Re/code; and an expansion of the site’s podcasts.
“The hiring of Frommer also ‘gives me more time to write,’ she said.”
