Andrea Seabrook Joins Marketplace as its D.C. Bureau Chief

LOS ANGELES—June 21, 2016 — Today Marketplace is excited to welcome renowned journalist Andrea Seabrook as its new Washington, D.C. bureau chief. Seabrook is well-known to public radio listeners from her roles as NPR’s long-time Congressional Correspondent and as a host of its top shows, including All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, The Diane Rehm Show and Talk of the Nation.

Seabrook also created the ground-breaking DecodeDC podcast in keen anticipation of the industry boom. The show covers politics beyond the familiar red and blue state construct, which happens to coincide with how Marketplace thinks through its coverage of financial and economic issues as they intersect with Washington and politics.

“I am thrilled to find a home among journalists who share her life-long goal: producing journalism that is accessible and conversational, while providing extraordinary depth and context,” said Seabrook.
