Wall Street Journal technology reporter Rachael King has left the newspaper after six years to become a public relations person for YouTube.
Her first day on the new job is Monday.
On Twitter, King wrote, “Working
@WSJ for the past 6 years was an incredible experience, mostly due to my brilliant and kind colleagues. I searched carefully for a role that offered plenty of room for creativity and the opportunity to work with similarly amazing people.”
King has been in the San Francisco bureau for the past two years covering companies such as IBM and Salesforce.com. She previously worked as a reporter for CIO Journal, where she has excelled covering similar terrain in depth and getting to know many of the customers of the big enterprise software companies.
Before joining CIO Journal in 2012, she wrote about technology in the workplace for BusinessWeek.com, and before that worked as a freelancer writing about tech for Fortune magazine and other outlets.
She holds a degree in English from UCLA.
