Nilay Patel leaves The Verge for Ezra Klein’s Vox

Re/Code | Facebook

Verge Managing Editor Nilay Patel will become acting managing editor of Ezra Klein’s Vox, Kara Swisher reports. Both publications are owned by Vox Media.

Patel won’t stay long at Vox, Swisher writes: “Sources said he will later move on to work on the site related to Vox Media’s purchase last November of the Curbed Network of sites that focus on real estate and restaurants, with its founder Lockhart Steele.”

In a post published on Vox’s Facebook page Monday, Patel writes, “This is going to be fun.”

Last year I interviewed Patel, a copyright attorney, about what a writer with a legal background can bring to a publication. “There’s this whole army of unemployed law-school grads and none of them is competing with me,” Patel said.
