I’ve started at Business Insider Australia as technology editor

Earlier this month I started a new position as technology editor at Business Insider Australia. Media industry publication Influencing wrote this article on my change:

Business Insider backs Yoo as tech editor

Speaking to Influencing, Yoo said that he has been tasked with becoming the voice of Australia’s start-up scene, covering the stories behind their successes and failures, as well as the day-to-day bread and butter news from the likes of Telstra, Uber and Apple.

“I wanted the challenge of reporting to a broader audience about a broader range of topics,” said Yoo.

Deputy editor

I’m honoured to announce I’m now deputy editor at technology business publication CRN. The title change is reflecting additional responsibilities I have taken on in the past few months – I’m now involved more in managing freelance writers and production of the print magazine.

Thanks to the entire team at CRN and nextmedia for the vote of confidence.

Best New Journalist

I am pleased to announce that I won the Best New Journalist gong at the Optus IT Journalism Awards on Friday May 15.

With tremendous pride, I can say that I came out on top in a tough field of ten finalists. I have certainly leant a lot about the craft of journalism during my time at CRN, and appreciate the peer and industry recognition.


Accepting the Best New Journalist award

CRN itself had a successful night, winning Magazine of the Year. Our sister publication iTnews deservedly won Best News Coverage, with my colleague Allie Coyne taking out Best Business Technology Journalist.

A wonderful honour – I certainly didn’t receive a “Best New IT guy” award in my previous career, so this award affirms that I am now doing what I should’ve been doing all along.
