Tom Krazit, executive editor at Gigaom, is leaving the news organization on Friday, he writes on Medium:

It’s been an honor and privilege to lead this group, one of the best groups of tech writers I’ve ever been associated with. I don’t think there’s any other group in technology and business media that is covering tech across as many sectors with as much skill and integrity as our folks, and I will greatly miss being part of that day-to-day creative process.

Krazit arrived at Gigaom in 2012 after the news organization purchased paidContent parent company ContentNext. He was news editor for more than a year before becoming executive editor in September 2013.

Krazit writes that he has "no specific plans at the moment," although he is mulling his future options. Mostly, he plans to enjoy a brief respite from the news:

I’m honestly looking forward to a bit of a break from the grind of the modern media cycle, and I hope to emerge on the other side with more time to write and contribute to places that I respect.
