Raice named WSJ’s midwest bureau chief
Emily Nelson, U.S. coverage chief at The Wall Street Journal, sent out the following announcement:
We are thrilled to announce that Shayndi Raice is named Midwest Bureau Chief.
Shayndi, who started just a week ago, already has delivered the critical leadership and attitude required for these historic times. With drive and intelligence, she has shepherded several significant U.S. coronavirus stories. Beyond that, her insight and experience as a reporter in Chicago will be the foundation for how we report the Midwest’s biggest stories. Shayndi and her talented team of reporters cover a sweeping area of the U.S.–16 states from North Dakota to Texas, Ohio to Kansas.
Her path is emblematic of how the Journal identifies its next generation of leaders. Shayndi joined the Journal as a telecom reporter in 2010 after an internship at Dow Jones Newswires. She went on to cover tech companies including Facebook in San Francisco, Bank of America and Wells Fargo out of New York and European M&A out of London. Since 2016, she has been based in Chicago as a US news reporter covering the Midwest economy. She was an anchor of our 2019 Loeb-winning coverage of Amazon’s search for HQ2.
She is a graduate of Yeshiva University and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and a native of Monsey, N.Y. She lives in Chicago with her husband and two sons.
Please join us in congratulating Shayndi on her new role.
