Recode, the Original Good Tech News Site, is Folding into Vox.com
Pour our one out for tech and media site Recode (née Re/Code, née AllThingsD): The site, acquired by Vox Media in 2015, is being folded into Vox.com, The Wall Street Journal was first to report Thursday. (Retail site Racked was also folded into Vox.com earlier this year.) But Recode isn’t going away:
Vox Media publisher Melissa Bell said in a memo that Recode would relaunch as a section of Vox.com starting next year. Recode will continue to exist as a brand and business, and Recode’s staff will report to Vox Editor in Chief Lauren Williams, Ms. Bell said.
‘The aim of this relaunch is to create a bigger, bolder Recode, using Vox’s platform, editorial support, and distribution power to amplify Recode’s work,’ Ms. Bell said.
