The Washington Post plans to expand its technology coverage, adding 11 new positions for reporters, editors and videographers.

According to The Post, the initiative will mean “significant growth for The Post’s San Francisco bureau, where two technology reporters and one editor are now based. The bureau also will now house a video studio. Positions also will be added in Seattle and Washington, D.C.

“In addition to the 14 journalists who already focus all or most of their time on technology coverage, the new positions for reporters, editors and video journalists bring the total to 25 – an 80 percent increase. These positions contribute to an already expanded business section that has doubled its staff over the past five years, with greater coverage in areas ranging from economic policy to the business of entertainment.”
