Numerous prominent journalists have been recruited to write for the site, including Steven Levy,[1] Andrew Leonard,[2] Susan P. Crawford,[3] Virginia Heffernan,[4] Doug Menuez,[5] Peter Diamandis,[6] Jessi Hempel, and many others. In addition, Backchannel has interviewed many notable figures, such as Demis Hassabis[7] of Google DeepMind and Orrin Hatch[8] of the Republican Party.

Backchannel began as an in-house publication on Medium (website). In 2016, Backchannel was purchased by Condé Nast;[9] in 2017, it was announced [10] that Backchannel would be moving off of Medium and be hosted by Wired (magazine), while remaining editorially independent.
