Today Erick Schonfeld, the chief editor of the popular TechCrunch tehnoblog, is announced to quit the publication. He will be replaced by Eric Eldon, one of the site’s journalists. This is the second shift at the post for the past six months: in September 2011 Michael Arrington, the founder of the technoblog, quitted TechCrunch. He headed a newly created venture CrunchFund.
According to Mr. Eldon, he was already proposed to join TechCrunch last November, but the opportunity to take up this post was not even considered. But at the moment Shonfeld decided that now is the best time for him to go away, - Eldon says, who previously worked for the Inside Facebook edition. He also adds that in the near future the tehnoblog will announce other important staff changes.
Eldon is intended to concentrate on the original TechCrunch subject matter - startups, venture capital investments and innovations from the largest technological corporations. The technoblog intends to increase the journalists staff both in the USA and abroad, as well as actively develop media content.
