NY Times hires WSJ reporter Stevis-Gridneff
The New York Times has hired Wall Street Journal reporter Matina Stevis-Gridneff.
Stevis-Gridneff will be based in Brussels.
“It’s been an incredible, rare ride at the Journal,” she wrote on Twitter. “Now for the head-spinning privilege to be a Times foreign correspondent.”
Stevis-Gridneff has been writing about money in Africa for the Journal, based in Nairobi. She was previously based in Brussels, covering the euro-zone crisis and migration. She read Modern History and Politics at Oxford University and holds an MPA in Public Policy from the London School of Economics.
She was one of only a handful of foreign journalists to have been to Eritrea since correspondents were deported in 2008.
Before joining the WSJ, she wrote for the Economist, where she won the 2010 Marjorie Deane financial journalism award, and contributed to the Guardian.
