John Corrigan, the business editor of the Los Angeles Times, sent out the following staff announcement on Monday:

Please join me in welcoming reporter Andrew Tangel, who joins the Business team today.  Andrew will be based in New York, where he will cover Wall Street and the financial markets.

Andrew comes to us from New Jersey’s Bergen Record, where he spent four years as a reporter covering white-collar crime and tracking Wall Street’s tumult during the financial crisis. He helped anchor the paper’s coverage of the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme and the rise and fall of Lehman Brothers.

A native of Louisville, Andrew received a bachelor’s degree in political science at DePauw University in 2003. He also earned an MA in financial journalism at Columbia University in New York.  Before joining the Record, he worked at the Springfield News-Leader and the Wilmington News Journal.

Andrew will be in Los Angeles for the next two weeks before starting in our NYC bureau May 7, so please drop by and say hello.
