Laid off biz reporter finds job with Dow Jones
Deborah Gage, a business journalist who lost her job with the San Francisco Chronicle in 2009 due to layoffs, has been hired by Dow Jones.
Gage will be covering venture capital, startups and tech for VentureWire and developing stories for the Wall Street Journal. She had been freelancing for the past 16 months and has been a contributing editor for CBS Interactive’s Smart Planet and a contributor for Reuters.
“I’m looking forward to it,” said Gage in an e-mail. “I feel ready to go back into a job, and I do think the journalism job market is opening up a bit, although it’s still very competitive.”
Gage covered computer security, privacy, venture captalists and trends around Silicon Valley for the Chronicle. She has covered technology and business out of Silicon Valley since 1994, most recently for Baseline magazine.
