Vox Media acquires Re/Code

Vox Media has acquired online magazine Re/Code for an undisclosed sum.

Re/Code, which covers major tech and media news, was launched in 2014 by journalists Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg.

“Vox Media has built some of the leading media brands of the digital generation by empowering the most talented voices -- from our beginnings as a network of sports bloggers at SB Nation, through the launches of The Verge, Polygon and Vox.com, as well as our successful integration of Eater, Curbed and Racked,” said Jim Bankoff Vox’s chief executive.

“Kara, Walt, and the Re/code team embody this same exceptional digital-first approach to journalism, continuing to set the highest bar for tech business coverage.”

Re/code, while popular, is relatively young and according to Vox, will benefit from Vox’s established infrastructure and resources.

Eventually, Re/code will transfer over to Chorus, Vox Media’s proprietary platform.
