Starting off this week with some big news for my team: We’re growing. We just hired Ashley Carman, most recently of The Verge, and Thomas Buckley, most recently of our London office. Ashley is based in New York and will cover podcasts, music and the creator economy. Thomas is moving to Los Angeles and will join our crew covering Hollywood.

I will continue to write about both of those subjects here (and across Bloomberg’s many platforms), but we are endeavoring to build a team of people whom you need to read every week. Ashley will be writing a weekly newsletter, to which you should subscribe right now.
