The Washington Post Expands Technology Team in San Francisco and D.C.

by | Feb 8, 2021

The Washington Post announced a significant expansion of its technology team, adding eight positions that will grow the team to 27 reporters, editors and video journalists. The Post’s technology coverage saw a 40% growth in readership in 2020 and, reports The Post, “the added positions will give readers even greater insight into the impact of big tech and Washington’s intensifying focus on regulating the industry.”

“The need for this expansion is clear. News surrounding big technology companies and their role in society is becoming more urgent as lawmakers seek to regulate a rapidly expanding industry,” said David Cho, business editor at The Washington Post. “With this investment, we will be able to do more ambitious storytelling on topics ranging from personal technology to technology policy, giving readers greater insight to what is taking place and what it all means.”

The Post announced a major investment in technology coverage in October 2018 with the creation of a San Francisco bureau and 11 new positions.  Two or three of the new tech team positions will be in D.C., with the rest joining the bureau in San Francisco.
