Code Conference Returns September 26 With New Hosts

Oliver Darcy, in CNN’s Reliable Sources newsletter:

Vox Media is gearing up for its first Code Conference without Kara Swisher at the helm. The invite-only event, which attracts top tech execs and journalists, will be hosted this year by The Verge Editor-In-Chief Nilay Patel, Platformer founder Casey Newton, and CNBC senior reporter Julia Boorstin. Swisher, who co-founded the news-making conference with Walt Mossberg and hosted it for the past two decades, will still participate in the conference, albeit in a less outsized role. The conference, which will take place September 26 to 27, also moves to the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel.

Replacing Swisher is no easy task, but I have a feeling these three hosts will be able to hold industry executives accountable.
