After a two-year stay at the Washington Post, Sam Diaz resigned yesterday, to return home to the Bay Area.
He starts in November at public relations company Sutherland Gold Group, where, in his own words, he “will be helping tech startups indevelop content strategies such as blogs, podcasts, v-logs, content widgets and other fun, cutting-edge stuff.”
He joined the Post in August 2005 as assistant technology editor and was most recently cross-training as a technology reporter.
“One of the toughest things about the whole process has been the idea of leaving journalism, the only career path I’ve ever known. But I’m excited about the new opportunity and the challenges of bringing my journalism skills to a new industry. ”
Sam also sits on the board of directors of NAHJ as financial officer.
