Politico hires Sisco to cover antitrust

Josh Sisco

Politico managing editor of policy news Clea Benson sent out the following:

We’re delighted to welcome antitrust reporter Josh Sisco to POLITICO, where he’ll cover how regulators and policy makers are fighting to rein in corporate power and the pushback from the companies and their Washington allies. Josh will be joining the technology team, but he will collaborate with reporters covering antitrust stories across the newsroom.

Josh has spent the last nine years covering antitrust enforcement, policy and litigation, most recently at The Information, where he broke news on topics important to the interests of POLITICO readers — including a long list of scoops on internal personnel turmoil at the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission, dealmaking by companies like Google, and an exclusive about the FTC opening an inquiry into Elon Musk’s efforts to buy Twitter. He has previously worked for publications including The Capitol Forum, MLex and Policy and Regulatory Report.

With Josh aboard, the technology team will expand its presence to the Bay Area and the heart of the tech industry.  His scoops about the inner workings of D.C. agencies are all the more impressive because he reported them from his home in Oakland, Calif., where he lives with his wife and toddler.  A native of Los Angeles suburbia, he remains a lifelong Dodger fan.

Josh starts tomorrow. Please join us in welcoming him to POLITICO.
