At The Verge, Warren will write about Microsoft and other tech companies. His official title will be European Senior Editor.
Warren started WinRumors in October 2010 and ran the site part-time while working a day job. Since its inception, WinRumors has developed a vibrant community and become an authority on Microsoft news.
The move allows Warren to cover tech full-time.
“I’m planning to build a vibrant community of Microsoft fans over at The Verge’s Microserfs channel,” Warren wrote. “The site also has a forum where users can interact and post questions and answers, something I was unable to provide here at WinRumors.”
The Verge, which is part of Vox Media along with sports media network SB Nation, was founded by former Engadget editor Joshua Topolsky and former AOL media executive Marty Moe last month. It employs a number of former Engadget writers and editors.
Moe told Business Insider that hiring Warren immediately gives The Verge the foremost coverage of Microsoft and Windows products anywhere.
“We’re incredibly gratified and honored that a writer of Tom’s stature would want to join the Verge and do what he does best full time with us, particularly when he’s built up such a successful brand and following at his own site,” Moe said.
