Kristen Schorsch, who covers health care for Crain’s Chicago Business, is leaving the publication at the end of the month to join WBEZ.

She will be joining the public radio station’s politics and government team covering Cook County. Her last day at Crain’s is May 25.

At Crain’s Chicago, Schorsch covered the hospital, health insurance and pharmaceutical industries and their dramatic transformations under the Affordable Care Act. She is also a longtime board member of the Chicago Headline Club and a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors.

Schorsch has been at Crain’s Chicago for the past seven years. Before that, Schorsch was a general assignment reporter for two years at the Chicago Tribune, where she covered everything from public officials and programs wasting taxpayer money to crime and the occasional news of the weird.

Previously, she was a reporter at the SouthtownStar and the Iowa City Press-Citizen, where she covered higher education, health care and the Iowa caucuses.

She is a University of Illinois graduate.
