WSJ names Tammy Audi as economics editor


The Wall Street Journal announced Tammy Audi will return to the Journal as economics editor based in New York.

Audi joined the Journal in 2007, as a reporter covering the gambling industry and national news including the Gabby Giffords shooting and the San Bernardino terror attack. She also directed our U.S. News coverage as West Coast bureau chief where she ran big stories such as the Las Vegas shooting.

She also served as deputy editor of enterprise for the Journal, where she helped lead numerous memorable stories, particularly around Covid and its personal and economic implications.

Most recently, she worked as national enterprise editor for The New York Times, directing some of the biggest stories during her tenure, including abortion coverage before, during and after the overturning of Roe v. Wade and helping lead U.S. coverage of the war in Gaza. She recently published a magazine piece about an immigrant who after joining the U.S. military was accused of espionage, following a case she first covered with the Detroit Free Press 20 years ago.

In addition to the Detroit Free Press, she has also worked at The Philadelphia Inquirer and smaller outlets in her native New England like The Brookline Citizen and The Danvers Herald.
