We are thrilled to announce Monica Melton as The Plug’s first full-time managing editor. She’ll lead the shaping of our editorial voice, build a team across research and reporting disciplines, and expand the frequency of publishing and partnerships across our platform.

Monica Melton is the managing editor of The Plug Insights. She previously covered innovation, technology, and venture capital at Forbes. She has also covered politics at POLITICO, entertainment for Time Out New York, but her most fascinating beat has been covering the intersection of technology, finance, and entrepreneurship. She is an alumna of CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and the University of Washington.
