Washington Post hires Fortune’s Newmyer
Washington Post national editor Scott Wilson, politics editor Steven Ginsburg, national politics editor Rachel Van Dongen and deputy politics editor Amy Gardner sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
We are excited to announce that Tory Newmyer will be joining the PowerPost team to anchor our forthcoming newsletter on financial services and economic policy. This is another in a series of steps to expand and deepen PowerPost’s policy coverage this year.
Tory joins The Washington Post from Fortune, where he has worked for the last six-and-a-half years as the magazine’s Washington correspondent. There, he wrote a mix of feature-length magazine pieces and web stories on the push and pull between corporate interests and government. Most recently, Tory launched a newsletter, Trumponomics Daily, chronicling the Trump administration’s impact on business. Prior to Fortune, Tory spent five years at Roll Call covering the House leadership, the lobbying industry, and campaign finance issues. He cut his teeth as a local government reporter at the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
A history major at Columbia University, Tory is a native Washingtonian who now lives in the Shaw neighborhood. He’s also a space obsessive and would like to see about reserving a spot on a Blue Origin rocket.
Please welcome Tory when he starts on April 10.
