Reuters hires new Fed reporter
Reuters Washington bureau chief Marilyn Thompson and Washington economics editor Tim Ahmann sent out the following announcement on Monday:
We are pleased to announce that Howard Schneider, who until recently was at the Washington Post, will join us on April 21 to help lead our Federal Reserve coverage. Howard has been covering international economics for the Post for the past four years with stories ranging from trade and the euro zone crisis to the International Monetary Fund and U.S.-China economic relations. He has extensive experience in both economics and international affairs.
In more than 25 years at the Post, he has led coverage from Jerusalem, Cairo and Toronto, and has served as both economics editor and local business editor. He started at the Post as a Metro staff writer, and has taught journalism and writing. He is currently working towards a Masters in applied economics.
He will join Michael Flaherty, whose appointment was previously announced, in leading our Fed coverage from Washington. The appointment brings our U.S. central bank reporting team up to full strength and positions us to deliver the insightful coverage our clients demand.
