Tech editor Murphy is leaving Lifehacker
David Murphy, the senior tech editor at Lifehacker, is leaving the website.
Murphy has been at Lifehacker since March 2018.
“It’s bittersweet, since service journalism has been what I love doing most in the ‘cough’ years I’ve been in this industry,” he wrote on Twitter.
Murphy managed and cultivated a team of freelancers, publishing news-based and evergreen tech stories to establish Lifehacker’s top-performing vertical at 115 million total pageviews.. The tech page published more than 80 articles each month.
He previously was head of editorial at Packagd and a staff writer at The Wirecutter.
Murphy holds two degrees from Northwestern.
