YugaTech has been covering most of the local and global tech scene for the past 8 years and we believe it is time to expand our news to other categories like sports, showbiz, entertainment, politics and everything else that trends on Twitter.
Since last year, we’ve already beefed up our news and reviews team. The editorial team is now at 4, including 2 full time contributors and one part-time correspondent.
We are currently looking to expand this team to about 10 contributors in the next 6 months. The new bloggers will be a diverse mix of folks who are familiar with the showbiz and entertainment scene, a former sports journalist, a political correspondent in Malacanang and a social media expert that will monitor Twitter trending topics all day.
YugaTech has recently received a significant amount of investment from a regional group (we can’t divulge any more details on this for now), thus the plans for rapid expansion.
The site will undergo a revamp and we will also be announcing our first editor-in-chief, who is a veteran journalist and former Palanca awardee.
Expect more news and updates in the coming weeks.
