AllThingsD and The Wall Street Journal have decided to part ways at the end of this year.
Rumors had been circulating for some time now that the tech news outlet run by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher could be departing their home at WSJ, and now it is official. There is no word as of yet as to what either property plans to do going forward, but it's hard to imagine "Uncle Walt," as he is fondly referred to, will be straying to far from the tech industry.
While the press release specifically mentions Mossberg's departure, that is no comments directly as to whether or not Kara Swisher will also be departing with AllThingsD.
Wall Street Journal and All Things D Decide Not To Renew Agreement At The End Of the Year
NEW YORK – September 19, 2013 – For years, Dow Jones/The Wall Street Journal has enjoyed working with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher to bring the best of tech coverage to readers around the world under the All Things Digital brand; however, after discussions, both parties have decided not to renew the agreement when the contract expires at the end of this year.
Technology is the central driver of economic growth and the Journal is committed to being the indispensable global source of news and information in this critical area. We plan to embark on a major global expansion of our technology coverage, which will include adding 20 reviewers, bloggers, visual journalists, editors, and reporters covering digital. As part of this global push, we will also be expanding our conference franchise to include an international technology conference and building a new digital home for our first-class technology news and product reviews on The Wall Street Journal Digital Network. This new initiative will be an integral part of The Wall Street Journal and will be rooted in the Journal's reputation for excellent, fair, objective, reliable and stimulating journalism.
As part of the mutual separation, Walt Mossberg will be leaving the Journal at the end of this year. I want to offer heartfelt thanks for more than twenty years of Personal Technology columns as well as his very fine reporting on national and international affairs in the years before he turned his attention to technology coverage.
