The New Yorker Names Online Business Editor

Vauhini Vara is joining The New Yorker as business editor of Newyorker.com. Vara comes to the site from The Wall Street Journal, where she had been since 2003, serving as a staff reporter.

“Vauhini is everything we want in a business reporter: she breaks news, files F.O.I.A. requests, and writes beautifully,” said Nicholas Thompson, editor of Newyorker.com, in a statement. “I’ve always wanted someone who can cover the S.E.C. and who has also studied literary fiction. She’ll do a great job in further expanding our rapidly growing business coverage on newyorker.com.”

Vara begins July 29.
