NY Times hires Solomon as economics editor
New York Times Washington bureau chief Elisabeth Bumiller and business editor Ellen Pollock sent out the following announcement on Thursday:
We’re very happy to announce that Deborah Solomon, a former editor and reporter at The Wall Street Journal, will be the economics editor in the Washington Bureau.
Deborah is currently a director at Brunswick Group in Washington, where she provides strategic advice to senior executives on crisis situations, litigation and regulatory matters. From 2000 to 2015, she was at The Journal, where she most recently oversaw the financial regulatory and law enforcement teams as a news editor in the paper’s Washington bureau. As a reporter, Deborah led The Journal’s coverage of Washington’s response to the 2008 financial crisis and was a finalist, along with several colleagues, for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize. She was also part of a team that won the 2009 Gerald Loeb Award for “The Day That Changed Wall Street.”
In 2003, Deborah was a member of a team of Wall Street Journal reporters awarded the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting for the paper’s coverage of the WorldCom scandal, as well as a 2003 Gerald Loeb Award.
Deborah has worked at a range of media outlets, including Bloomberg View, USA Today and the San Francisco Chronicle. She is an avid sailor and spends her weekends trying not to capsize on the Potomac River.
She starts on Sept. 18. Please join us in welcoming her.
Elisabeth and Ellen
