Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer:
I am thrilled to announce that award-winning columnist, best-selling author, and TV host David Pogue will be joining Yahoo. David will lead a major expansion of consumer tech coverage on Yahoo and will publish columns, blog posts and video stories that demystify the gadgets, apps and technology that powers our users’ daily lives.
David Pogue also posted his own statement on Tumblr. Thirteen years is a long time to be at the Times; in that time, Yahoo’s clout has dropped precipitously. But they’re on their way back up, so this will be an intriguing new beginning.
Pogue will likely be working from Yahoo’s swank New York office which, ironically, is the former office of the New York Times.
