Christopher Wink, the CEO of Technical.ly, writes about how the tech news operation plans to expand in Philadelphia.
Wink writes, “As other local newsrooms are shrinking, we at Technical.ly are about to make the largest single new investment in our journalism that we ever have.
“In December, we announced we were adding an additional full-time reporter in Baltimore. Despite remarkable disruption, that is still happening. Now, we’re also going to be adding a new full-time reporter in Philadelphia.
“This full-time journalist will join our lead Philly reporter Paige Gross, Managing Editor Julie Zeglen and Sabrina Vourvoulias, who is the editor of our sister publication Generocity, to our Philadelphia newsroom. Our newsroom is additionally staffed in Baltimore, Washington D.C., Delaware and soon Pittsburgh. Look for more details on this hire soon.
“This is part of a vision to see Technical.ly as a modern wealth and poverty beat, chronicling Philadelphia’s economic transformation — which will be further accelerated and disrupted by a massive global recession. This is also happening while our sustainability is at risk. Simply put, postponing the 10th annual Philly Tech Week is a major disruption.”
