Rexrode leaving AP for Marketwatch
Christina Rexrode, who has covered retail and banking for the Associated Press for the past two-and-a-half years, has resigned to accept a job covering banking for Marketwatch.com, the Dow Jones & Co. property.
AP business editor Hall Ritter sent out the following message to the staff:
Sorry to report that Christina Rexrode will be leaving us later this month to join MarketWatch as a banking reporter. Christina joined us from Charlotte as a retailing reporter in early 2011 and moved over to the money team last year to cover banking and help out on markets coverage. She has delivered many fine stories that were written with verve. We’ll miss those stories, as well as Christina’s presence in the newsroom.
Please join me in wishing her the best in her new job.
She joined the AP in March 2011 after covering banking for the Charlotte Observer. She had worked there for slightly more than three years. While there, she wrote about everything from shareholders’ fight to block the sale of Wachovia to Wells Fargo to what fewer banks means for consumers, from perks for Bank of America directors and executives to the fall of CEO Ken Lewis.
Before that, Rexrode worked at the St. Petersburg Times in Florida, writing business stories and working on the copy desk.
She is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill.
