Axios has hired USA Today business reporter Nathan Bomey to co-lead the Axios Closer newsletter and report on business.

His last day at USA Today is Monday.

Bomey has covered a wide range of news, including how business is changing, the auto industry, bankruptcy and the business of personal health for USA Today. He also served as the editor and writer of The Daily Money, USA Today’s Monday-through-Friday morning newsletter on business news, tech and personal finance.

Before joining USA Today in 2015, Bomey was a reporter for the Detroit Free Press, where he covered General Motors and the Detroit bankruptcy. He was also previously a business reporter for several years in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and for his hometown paper before that.

Bomey is the author of three nationally published nonfiction books: “Bridge Builders: Bringing People Together in a Polarized Age” (2021, Polity Press), “After the Fact: The Erosion of Truth and the Inevitable Rise of Donald Trump” (2018, Prometheus Books) and “Detroit Resurrected: To Bankruptcy and Back” (2016, W.W.
