WSJ’s Torry to report on the economy in the Western United States

Harriet Torry, a veteran business journalist with 14 years of experience at the Wall Street Journal, has been assigned to cover the Western U.S. economy from Houston, Texas. Previously, she focused on covering consumers in the U.S. economy from the Washington, D.C. bureau, where she also covered the Federal Reserve. Torry began her career at the Journal in Frankfurt in 2010 as a financial reporter and later moved to Berlin to report on the German government and economy amidst the eurozone sovereign debt crisis before joining UNC-Chapel Hill as Walter E. Hussman Sr. Distinguished Professor in business journalism and dean of the School of Communications at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut.

Chris Roush served as dean of the School of Communications at Quinnipiac University for several years before taking on his current role as an author and business journalist with a background in Bloomberg News, Businessweek, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Tampa Tribune, and Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

Roush is known for his expertise in business journalism and has authored two well-known books in the field – “Show me the Money: Writing Business and Economics Stories for Mass Communication” and “Thinking Things Over,” a biography on former Wall Street Journal editor Vermont Royster.

With her new assignment covering the Western U.S. economy from Houston, Texas, Torry will bring her extensive experience covering consumers in the U.S. economy to bear on this new endeavor while Roush continues his work as an author and business journalist after serving as dean at Quinnipiac University for several years.

Both journalists have strong backgrounds in business journalism and are known for their expertise in their respective fields. Their unique perspectives will undoubtedly provide valuable insights into economic developments across different regions of the country.

In conclusion, both journalists have impressive credentials and are poised to continue making valuable contributions to their respective fields through their work at prominent publications like Wall Street Journal and Quinnipiac University’s School of Communications.
