The Winds of Change at Microwaves & RF

Dec. 11, 2019
Senior Content Director Bill Wong bids a fond farewell to outgoing editor Chris DeMartino.

Business is tough everywhere, but especially in our arena where technology and journalism meet. One of the reasons Microwaves & RF has been successful is because we have a technical staff that understands the material we cover, including the latest products and tools.

Chris DeMartino has been with us for almost five years as editor after getting his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Binghamton University and then Master’s in Electrical Engineering from New York University - Polytechnic School of Engineering. He also held positions at major electronics firms like MITEQ, U.S. Dynamics, and Mercury Systems.

He’s one of the few who can master the technology as well as be able to write articles that are both informative as well as understandable. Being an engineer turned journalist is no easy task and Chris excelled at it. He has hosted a plethora of webinars and written more technical articles than most writers. He will be sorely missed, and we wish him the best in his new position.  

We may wind up reporting on his work—Chris will be moving back into the engineering side of things where the fun is. His tenure with Microwaves & RF has raised the bar in terms quality and quantity, which is apparent from reading our website. We will have a new editor for the magazine in the near future, but he or she will have some big shoes to fill.

Some readers who examine the fine print will also notice we are now part of Endeavor Business Media. This migration includes a range of publications that were part of Informa, including Electronic Design, Machine Design, Source Today, and Hydraulics & Pneumatics, just to mention a few. We’re looking to continue our growth and coverage.

In the meantime, you may see me in the pages of Microwaves & RF in addition to my usual haunts on Electronic Design.
