USA Today has named Michelle Maltais as editor of consumer news.

A story on its website states, “Maltais, as managing editor for consumer news, will supervise coverage that includes consumer issues, technology and travel. She joined USA TODAY in 2018 as an editor in Money and Tech, overseeing coverage of retail, food and technology.

“‘One primary mission of our coverage team is to report and reflect what’s important to our readers as consumers – shoppers and savers – to help them feel confident and informed in areas they spend their time and money,’ Maltais said. ‘We aim to continue and enhance an ongoing conversation with readers in areas such as shopping, technology and travel that impact their lives and to shine a light on issues of access and equity as well.’

“Prior to joining USA TODAY, Maltais worked for the Los Angeles Times, where she worked as a technology reporter and in various roles including newsroom broadcast executive producer and deputy director of audience engagement. She was part of a team that won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news coverage of the San Bernardino terrorist attack.”
