TechCrunch has just announced that Eric Eldon is taking over as their new editor.

Eric Eldon is the new editor of TechCrunch!

Erick Schonfeld is leaving the company.

Eldon spoke about their future plans related to the TechCrunch network:

We’re going to put our heads down and focus on the basics. We’re going to continue building our team in Silicon Valley, hitting the mean streets of Silicon Valley to report on the entrepreneurs, investors, world-class tech companies, and everyone else that makes this ecosystem what it is.

You know, the stories that made TechCrunch your homepage back in 2005 when it was a personal blog written by Michael Arrington. But it’s 2012 and the whole world is embracing tech entrepreneurship, so we’ll also grow our staff in other key cities in the US and around the world, too.

Let us hope things get better at TechCrunch and we get more of the breaking news rather than personal rants from their authors!
