Motoko Rich Leaves Publishing Beat; Will Cover Economic Beat

1270736575060_41c8d.jpgNY Times publishing reporter Motoko Rich is switching to the economic beat. She will now focus her reporting efforts on the economy and “how it is affecting workers, consumers, companies and institutions big and small.”

The news came from an internal memo earlier this week. Talking Biz News has an excerpt: “Motoko will team up with Catherine Rampell, another economics writer who edits the Economix blog, all reporting to Winnie O’Kelley to provide the broad array of coverage that our readers want and need and long have gotten from The Times.”

Rich has covered the publishing industry for the last four years, and we’ve linked to many of her fine stories. You can follow her work on Twitter as well. (Via Sarah Weinman & Maud Newton)
