Adam Clark Estes is leaving Vice and The Atlantic Wire for Gizmodo, Gawker Media’s gadget blog. Mr. Estes gave notice on Friday at Vice’s Motherboard blog, where he was an associate editor, and The Atlantic Wire, where he was a contributing writer.
“I’m sad to leave both places but couldn’t be more excited to get started at Gizmodo,” Mr. Estes wrote via text. He will start in mid-May as a senior writer.
Gawker overlord Nick Denton confirmed the hire this morning.
Before going to The Atlantic Wire, Mr. Estes did stints as the social news editor and the citizen journalism editor at The Huffington Post and was an editor of IvyGate. Mr. Estes, who has bipolar disorder, also wrote about dating while manic for The Cut last summer.
