Here is the memo to staff:

Team,

I¹d like to share some exciting news. We have two terrific and talented folks joining our newsroom in text and video.

Suzy Khimm joins as a National Reporter and will cover the federal agencies, social issues and the economy. Suzy will start later next month and be based in D.C. Previously, Suzy was a freelance journalist focusing on narrative features. Her work has appeared in Esquire, New York magazine, Foreign Policy, and The New York Times, among other outlets. Prior to that, she was a senior editor at The New Republic, a national reporter for MSNBC, and a staff reporter at The Washington Post, where she was a founding writer for Wonkblog. She is co-director of the Princeton Summer Journalism program, which aims to diversify newsrooms by working with outstanding high-school students from low-income backgrounds.

Andrew Stern joined this week as a Digital Video Producer focusing on premium video storytelling. Andrew is an Emmy-nominated digital video producer and editor who joins NBC after successful stints at Mic and Business Insider, where he worked for the investigative and narrative video teams focused on original storytelling. He’s reported, produced or edited videos on issues across the spectrum, from the affordable housing crisis in San Francisco, to the blizzard-battered protests at Standing Rock, to America’s opioid epidemic, our country’s crumbling infrastructure, shop class in the 21st century and others. A native Arkansan, Andrew loves mountain biking, loud music, and craft beer.

Please join me in welcoming Suzy and Andrew to the team!

Catherine
