More changes for Times business reporters–but this time, happily, they do not involve plagiarism charges.
Edward Wyatt, who wrote for Business Day from 1995-2000, is returning to the section. He’ll be based in Washington to cover regulatory issues.
According to a staff email from editors Larry Ingrassia and Dean Baquet:
While financial regulation will be a main focus [for] Ed, particularly this year, he also will help cover–along with Bizday beat reporters–the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Product Safety Commission, all of which are at the nexus of regulation of business and commerce.
Ed’s move to Washington is the second step–after Sewell Chan’s move to cover the Fed and Treasury–of our rebuilding of The Times‘s economic and business team in D.C. And there still is more to come.
Wyatt spent his years away from Business Day covering “education, the post-9/11 planning for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, the 2004 Democratic primaries, the publishing business, professional cycling and the Tour de France, and, most recently, culture and entertainment while based in Los Angeles.”
