Stephenson leaving Reuters to become Politico news editor
Kieran Murray, the Washington bureau chief for Reuters, sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
I’m sad to share the news that Emily Stephenson will be leaving Reuters at the end of this week to take up a new job as news editor at Politico.
Emily started her career at Reuters as a summer intern in 2010 in Chicago before moving to the Washington bureau, where she covered financial regulation and was a team leader on the Speed Team. She then moved to the campaign team in the fall of 2015 and made her mark with a number of deeply reported stories, including a piece during the campaign delving into Ted Cruz’s most famous Supreme Court case, a scoop on the details of Trump’s tax plan and a Special Report in 2012 that used data to dive into the impact of U.S. Postal Service closings.
In addition to being a talented journalist, Emily is well-known in the bureau for her collegiality and teamwork.
We will miss her but wish her all the best in her new job.
