WTOP launches tech section on wtop.com


Hubbard RadioHubbard’s all-News WTOP-FM and wtop.com in DC have launched a new section of the website dedicated exclusively to the news of technology. WTOP vet Neal Augenstein is the Technology Editor and will produce multimedia coverage of the tech category – on-air, online, and via social content (Facebook.com/wtopnews and Twitter @WTOPtech).

Augenstein is a pioneer when it comes to journalism and technology; he was the first major market radio reporter to do most of his field production on an iPhone, and has written about and hosted multiple seminars on using the latest technology for audio, video, photography and writing.

“Technology touches everything we do today,” says WTOP’s Director of Digital Media John Meyer. “We are going to tell the stories of how it is affecting lives in our area at work, home, school, and in government.”

WTOP Tech is the latest expansion of WTOP’s digital footprint following the launch of its Living section earlier this year.
