Digital Trends Expands Editorial Department With New Gaming Editor, Writers
PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 21, 2020 — Digital Trends, the premiere Millennial-focused tech publisher, is undergoing an expansion of their editorial department with new writers and editors. Their most recent hires include Gaming Section Editor Lisa Marie Segarra, and Audio/Video Staff Writer Nick Woodward.
“We’re very excited to welcome Lisa Marie,” says Digital Trends Editor-in-Chief Jeremy Kaplan. “We consider her a real asset, and I’ve admired her work for a long time. Nick has impressed us with his comprehensive knowledge of consumer tech, coupled with a talent for writing in a clear, approachable way that makes his professionalism seem unassuming.”
Segarra previously covered the gaming industry at Fortune Magazine, writing about international e-sports and game developers. She also covered issues like harassment and exclusion within the gaming community. She’ll be bringing valuable TV experience to Digital Trends Live. She joined Time Inc in 2017 as part of the News Desk, a joint venture with Time, Fortune, and Money Magazines. Previously, Segarra worked for The Bergen Record and NorthJersey.com and attended Rutgers University, where she studied Journalism and Media Studies.
As A/V writer, Nick Woodard will cover products including 4K HDR TVs, headphones, soundbars, wireless speakers, Dolby Atmos and other 360-degree surround formats and products, as well as streaming services and devices and more. Nick previously covered sports for daily newspapers, and has studied journalism at Chico State.
“The expansion of our editorial department gives us even more breathing room to cover the products and topics our readers care about most,” says Digital Trends CEO Ian Bell. “Our readers give us tons of feedback and support, so we’re always happy to reciprocate by escalating the kind of content they want to see more of.”
The new hires reignite the growth of Digital Trends, which saw a sweep of C-level hires in 2018 and has grown to reach 30 million unique monthly readers, making it the world’s largest independent tech publisher.
