Josh Topolsky, founder of The Verge, is off to Bloomberg, with Nilay Patel and Dieter Bohn stepping up at The Verge as #1 and #2, respetively.
As you might have heard, I’m stepping in to be the next editor-in-chief of The Verge. I’m also excited to announce that my friend Dieter Bohn will be our new executive editor. We’ll be working with the amazing team that’s already in place and making The Verge happen every day, a team I think is the best in the industry.
This is going to be rad.
Nilay and Dieter are two of my favorite voices in the industry, and given that Topolsky has been largely AWOL at The Verge for the last few months, I’m pretty excited for this change. Hopefully it’s the breath of fresh air that I feel The Verge has been waiting for since the hiatus-ing of the Vergecast.
