New York Times political reporter Nick Confessore to join the paper’s Investigations team
The New York Times today announced that Nicholas Confessore will join the Investigations team, and also be writer-at-large for The New York Times Magazine.
Confessore began his career as a staff writer at The American Prospect, and then was an editor at The Washington Monthly.
He joined the NYT in 2004.
Here is the memo to staff by the NYT’s Rebecca Corbett, Paul Fishleder and Jake Silverstein:
We are thrilled to announce a new role for Nick Confessore, who has led the paper’s coverage of money and politics for the past several years, most recently as part of the 2016 politics team. Nick will work jointly for Investigations and for the Magazine, where he’ll be a writer-at-large. He’ll be covering a range of topics, including but not limited to wealth, power, and influence in Trump’s Washington and beyond.
From his reporting on the downfall of Eliot Spitzer (for which he shared a Pulitzer) to his remarkable work leading our investigation into the coterie of families funding the 2016 presidential campaign (for which he shared a Loeb prize), Nick consistently delivers deeply reported, well-wrought narratives that win both readers and accolades.
At Investigations and the Magazine, he will continue in this vein. Nick has a long history with the Magazine, going back to before he joined The Times in 2004 from the Washington Monthly. Recently, Nick wrote a masterful story for the Magazine in November about the secretive and tangled world of offshore banking (“How To Hide $400 Million”).
Please join us in congratulating Nick on this new role.
