Tom Dotan joined The Information in 2014. He spent the last two years covering tech for the Los Angeles Business Journal in the heart of mediadom. While there he broke stories about the struggles of online video, the movie industry’s tense relationship with tech (particularly the talent agencies) and the rise and fall of subscription e-commerce. Prior to the Business Journal he worked as a freelance political reporter, publishing pieces in the Guardian, Marketplace, KCET and the Sacramento Bee. During the 2012 Republican primaries Herman Cain once offered to fight him. He declined. Originally from Northern California, he lived in Los Angeles for the past 5 years, at one point getting a Master’s in Online Journalism from USC’s Annenberg School of Journalism. Good to be back home. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
