Welcome To Evelyn Rusli, Whom We Stole From Forbes

Everyone please say hello to Evelyn Rusli. It’s her first day here at TechCrunch as part of our core writing team.

Evelyn joins us from Forbes where she was an anchor reporter for the Forbes Video Network. Rusli split her time between writing and video at Forbes, and also made nearly 200 television appearances on Forbes on Fox and other shows. Prior to Forbes Rusli worked for the New York Times and the San Francisco Examiner, among other publications.

Only about 1/3 of Evelyn’s time will be spent writing. We will also shortly be launching our video project, TechCrunch TV. We’re putting the finishing touches on our new TV/video studio here at TechCrunch HQ, and Evelyn will be our main anchor for breaking news content as well as planned shows. Much more on that in a couple of weeks.

You can follow Evelyn on Twitter here, and of course meet her in person at TechCrunch Disrupt in May in New York.
