Sudeep Reddy is joining Politico as managing editor. Reddy joins the company from The Wall Street Journal, where he served as deputy economics editor since 2013.
Reddy had been with the Journal since 2007. He previously worked for The Dallas Morning News.
“As Politico grows in size, it is more important than ever to think critically about how we bring greater diversity in every form to the coverage and to the staff, break down barriers, and expand opportunities for everyone to build skills in accountability journalism,” wrote Politico editor Carrie Budoff-Brown and editor in chief John Harris, in a memo obtained by Talking Biz News. “With a collaborative style, an obsessive approach to hiring and plain common sense, Sudeep is uniquely suited for this task.”
