NY Times Names ‘Race and Ethnicity’ Reporter

The New York Times is moving staff reporter Tanzina Vega to its national desk, where she’ll cover a new beat — race and ethnicity. Vega announced the news on Twitter.

Vega has covered a variety of beats for the Times, including Media, Business, Sports, and Metro. She’s an experienced and talented reporter.

FishbowlNY also likes the fact that the Times tapped a Latina for the role, instead of the typical white male.

We’re definitely looking forward to Vega’s new work.
