“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. Since then, the team has been at the forefront of some of the most influential technology news, delivering scoops and bringing readers important coverage of privacy, data, devices, and more.
