Our cousins over at FishbowlNY got the scoop that Engadget, Joystiq and TUAW editorial director Joshua Fruhlinger is joining TMZ to head the site’s digital operation.
“Engadget, Joystiq, and TUAW are in my blood,” Fruhlinger told FishbowlNY. “Since 2004, I’ve worked hard to make them among the best tech news and information destinations in the world, and I feel now is as good a time as any to step aside and let the amazing teams at the sites’ helms do what they do best. Of course, moving to California to be close to my family has a good deal to do with my decision, and I look forward to seeing my parents, siblings, and their children on a regular basis.”
Engadget EIC Tim Stevens and Huffington Post Media Group tech business specialist Jay Kirsch will share Fruhlinger’s old duties. HuffPost spokesman Mario Ruiz says no new hires are expected.
