Kara Swisher to Leave The New York Times, Will Rejoin Vox Media for New Podcast

The new show will be a companion to Swisher’s ”Pivot“ podcast

Kara Swisher is heading back to Vox Media to launch a new interview podcast and will be leaving her role at The New York Times, Bloomberg reported Tuesday.

Swisher, who co-founded Recode, which was sold to Vox Media in 2015, will host a new show on the company’s podcast network that, according to the Bloomberg report, will serve as a companion to “Pivot,” a business and tech program she’s hosted for nearly four years alongside NYU professor Scott Galloway.

Swisher quickly retweeted the Bloomberg scoop.

Swisher joined The New York Times in 2018 as an opinion contributor and became a podcaster for the Times two years later but has continued to host her “Pivot” podcast for Vox Media.

Swisher told Bloomberg her interest in owning intellectual property and partnering to build a business motivated her to make the move.

“I’m 60 years old this year, I’ve made a lot of stuff for a lot of people,” Swisher said in an interview. “I want to do what I want to do. I want to make whatever I want to make, and I think that’s a great thing.”
