Axios hires NPR’s Goo
Sara Kehaulani Goo, current managing editor for NPR, will join Axios as an executive editor starting Dec. 2.
The hire comes as part of Axios’s aim to expand its tech, business, and science coverage.

Goo will be overseeing audience and audio expansion in the Axios’ expanding newsroom and will be reporting directly to Nicholas Johnston, Axios’s editor-in-chief.
Before joining NPR, Goo spent most of her career at The Washington Post, as a national business reporter, digital editor, and senior news director. She also founded a data reporting and visualization publication at Pew Research Center, where she served as a senior digital editor.
In addition, Goo was a reporter for The Wall Street Journal.
Originally from Southern California, Goo graduated from the University of Minnesota’s journalism school.
