Joshua Topolsky’s The Verge will provide several articles a day to Washingtonpost.com, and Topolsky himself will write a weekly technology column for both the web and print product, reports Businesswire.
Topolsky, of course, is the founder of The Verge and the former editor-in-chief of Engadget. The Verge is an SB Nation property, best known for its network of sports blogs.
“The Verge offers a wealth of ideas, fresh perspective and experience in covering technology issues,” said the Post’s Greg Schneider, national economy and business editor, in a statement. “This collaboration adds their expertise to The Washington Post’s robust coverage of technology policy and company trends.”
The Verge is not the first site to sign a content deal with the Washington Post; the Post also syndicates tech news from TechCrunch and Bloomberg Business News.
The Washington Post’s veteran tech columnist Rob Pegoraro left in April, saying that his work was apparently no longer “part of the Post’s core mission.”
