    Kara Swisher

    Co-Executive Editor and Co-Founder at Recode
    48

    Kara Swisher is the executive editor of Recode, host of the Recode Decode podcast and co-executive producer of the Code Conference.

    Recode and Code are wholly owned by Vox Media, a company with an audience of 170 million worldwide. It has eight distinct media brands: The Verge (Technology and Culture), Vox.com (News), SB Nation (Sports), Polygon (Gaming), Eater (Food and Nightlife), Racked (Shopping, Beauty and Fashion), Curbed (Real Estate and Home), as well as Recode (Tech Business).

    Swisher co-founded former Recode and Code owner Revere Digital and, before that, co-produced and co-hosted The Wall Street Journal’s "D: All Things Digital," with Mossberg. It was the major high-tech conference with interviewees such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and many other leading players in the tech and media industries. The gathering was considered one of the leading conferences focused on the convergence of tech and media industries.

    She and Mossberg were also the co-executive editors of a tech and media website, AllThingsD.com.
