Jared Newman

Tech Journalist


I’m a freelance technology journalist with more than a decade of experience writing news, product reviews, analysis, and reported features. From my remote outpost in Cincinnati, I cover consumer devices and the services that tie them together, mainly for PCWorld, TechHive, and Fast Company. I've also written for The New York Times, Vice Motherboard, TIME.com, Macworld, Popular Mechanics, and Rolling Stone. My weekly column about cord-cutting has been running for more than five years, and my weekly cord-cutting newsletter has more than 20,000 subscribers.

Presentations and interviews

In addition to writing about technology, I have given presentations on cord-cutting, apps, and productivity tools for libraries and professional groups around the country. I have also appeared as a guest on TV shows, radio programs, and podcasts to discuss various tech topics.
