WSJ reporter joins Quartz
Matt Phillips, a Wall Street Journal reporter on the Money & Investing team, has joined Quartz to cover similar finance, markets and economics.
Phillips joined The Atlantic’s new business news site shortly before its launch on Sept. 24, a spokeswoman told Talking Biz News.
Phillips had been with the Journal since December 2005. Before that, he spent 23 months with the Bakersfield Californian.
At The Journal for seven years, he covered the aftermath of the Great Recession and the relentless descent of U.S. interest rates.
Other descents he covered at the Journal include the January 2009 splashdown of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 into the Hudson River and Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.
Phillips caught the markets bug as lead writer for the Journal’s MarketBeat blog, which he helped turn into one of the most heavily trafficked web properties at the Journal.
