Fred Langa to Pen Monthly Column for Byte.com
Posted on April 23, 1999Fred Langa has come back to Byte. The award-winning journalist and former editor-in-chief of Byte Magazine has returned to write a monthly column for CMP Media's Byte.com. In his column, "The Monitor" which debuts on April 26, Langa will offer wide-ranging commentary on the leading-edge technology that will affect personal computing and on current computing-industry events.
Langa, a computer/Web author, editor, analyst and consultant, was Byte Magazine's editor-in-chief for four years before joining CMP in 1991 to relaunch Windows Magazine. Rising to vice president/editorial director, he oversaw the editorial operations of Windows Magazine, NetGuide and HomePC. Langa currently serves as senior consulting editor of Windows Magazine, writing the widely read analysis column, "The Explorer," and giving his opinions weekly for the magazine's online edition and for InformationWeek Online.
"It's great to be back at Byte," Langa said. "Its strength always has been multiplatform coverage and as today's OS pie gets sliced in new and different ways, the need for a platform-neutral title like Byte.com will only increase."
