Rosie Gray joins The Atlantic’s expanding Politics & Policy team
Gray has been a political reporter for BuzzFeed News, and before that was at the Village Voice
Washington, D.C. – December 9, 2016 — Reporter Rosie Gray is coming to The Atlantic as part of its growing Politics & Policy team. Gray will cover global affairs and U.S. politics for TheAtlantic.com, focusing on the global rise of populist nationalist movements.
“Rosie Gray is one of the most tenacious and indefatigable young reporters I’ve ever met, and her skills make her a perfect addition to an already outstanding web team,” said Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic’s editor in chief.
Gray comes to The Atlantic from BuzzFeed News. She was one of the first reporters hired by BuzzFeed, covering both the 2012 and 2016 presidential campaigns with a focus on Republican politics. Gray also covered the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo, Hypercacher, and Bataclan attacks in France and in Belgium, unrest in Venezuela, and the negotiations over the Iran nuclear deal, among other international stories. Gray got her start as a news and politics reporter at the Village Voice.
The Atlantic set audience and subscription records in November, and within the past week has grown its masthead with the hire of several leading reporters and editors. Also starting with The Atlantic in early 2017 are writers Julia Ioffe and McKay Coppins. Jane Yong Kim recently became editor of the Culture section on TheAtlantic.com. TheAtlantic.com is led by editor J.J. Gould.
