After two years at the Financial Times, media reporter Ken Li is returning to Reuters as the editor-in-charge of technology, media and telecommunications coverage, according to a release. (We have never heard this title before, but we assume editor-at-large and editor-in-chief had a baby, and Reuters adopted it.)
Mr. Li has a few large feathers in his reporter’s cap, including a big scoop ahead of the Time Warner-Comcast takeover of Adelphia. But we remember Mr. Li most recently for venting his frustation about the access given to reporters at this year’s Sun Valley meeting of moguls.
“We’re now in the kennel, the pen,” Mr. Li told a reporter for the Idaho Mountain Express while standing with his colleagues in a roped-off area by a duck pond at the conference in July. “It’s really disturbing.”
“I don’t know who’s in the cage, us or them,” he added.
