Dawn of a New Day: Chmielewski Joins Re/code as Second Mobile Reporter
Jay L. Clendenin/Los Angeles Times
Many years ago, Walt Mossberg and I wrote an essay for one of our conferences that talked about how Web 3.0 was all about mobile.
While some disagreed, we have stuck to the idea that chronicling the rise of mobile in all its facets was key to our editorial efforts. In hiring Ina Fried several years ago, we got that kind of top-notch coverage, as she has been at the leading edge of making sure our readers got the best news and analysis about the critical sector.
Now, we are adding to the beat with the addition of Dawn Chmielewski to cover mobile, devices and digital media computing for Re/code from the Los Angeles area.
She is a veteran journalist, most recently at the Los Angeles Times, where she worked for eight years as an entertainment writer responsible for covering two of the world’s largest media conglomerates, Disney and News Corp. (now 21st Century Fox). More recently, she has turned her attention to digital media — profiling new players shaking up the Hollywood status quo.
Prior to the Times, she worked as a technology reporter and personal technology columnist for the San Jose Mercury News, where she chronicled Apple’s renaissance and the rise of file-sharing networks. Chmielewski also previously worked at the Orange County Register, the Patriot Ledger and the Watertown Daily Times. She graduated from Utica College of Syracuse University.
We are thrilled to add her expertise to Re/code, joining the best group of tech reporters and editors around (IMHO).
