Samantha Oltman, editorial director of the Vox science, climate, and Recode teams, has left to help start Good Luck Media, which will focus on climate news.

Oltman joined Vox four years ago. As editor of Recode, she executive-produced Recode’s narrative and short-form podcasts “Land of the Giants” and “Recode Daily.” She also executive-produced the cable TV documentary series based on “Land of the Giants.”

Before coming to Vox, Oltman was the deputy tech and business editor for BuzzFeed News, where she co-managed the desk and edited a range of coverage, including stories about apps that misuse customers’ personal data, internal employee organizing and protests at tech companies, and the prevalence of fraud on e-commerce marketplaces.

Prior to that, she was a homepage editor at Wired for three years.
