Meet Matt Day, new Microsoft reporter at The Seattle Times

Hundreds of blog posts, dozens of acquisitions, 13 quarterly earnings reports, and one big CEO search later, I’m about ready to move on to a new role: covering the economy for The Seattle Times.

It’s been a privilege getting to write about Microsoft for all of you and having the opportunity to chronicle the company as it staked out territory in cloud and mobile, got into the hardware market, and appointed only its third CEO in company history.

Taking over the Microsoft beat at The Seattle Times is Matt Day.

Matt comes from The Wall Street Journal, where he most recently covered emerging financial markets. He reported on developing-world trends, including election drama in Brazil and the ripples caused by Africa’s debt boom. You can read his previous stories here (subscription required).

Before that, he covered commodities, writing about metals from gold to copper and the companies that dig them out of the ground. He is a graduate of Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn.

Previously based in New York City, Matt is now home back in the Northwest after doing most of his growing up in Silverton, Ore.

You can follow Matt on Twitter at @mattmday or drop him an email at mday@seattletimes.com.

I’m looking forward to reading his stories and blog posts as Microsoft launches Windows 10, pushes further into the cloud and remakes itself under its new CEO.

Please join me in welcoming Matt.
