Investigative Reporter Adam Entous to Join The New Yorker


Adam Entous, an investigative reporter with more than 20 years of experience in journalism, will take his skills to The New Yorker next year as a staff writer. Entous joined The Washington Post in 2016 where, as a staff writer focusing on national security, foreign policy and intelligence, he broke several stories about the investigations into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 elections.

Prior to the Post, Entous wrote for the Wall Street Journal and Reuters, covering the Pentagon, the CIA, the White House and Congress. Entous co-wrote a piece for the Wall Street Journal about the FBI’s investigation of an American diplomat, for which he was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Reporting.

He will be joining a New Yorker staff that has recently added Masha Gessen, Susan Glasser and Troy Patterson to its ranks. He is expected to pen longer investigative pieces for the magazine in addition to shorter columns and analysis online that focus on national security and the intelligence community. Before joining the magazine, however, Entous will remain at the Post to finish current reporting.

New Yorker Editor-in-Chief David Remnick announced the hire in a statement saying, “At a moment when the best in journalism is in such demand, we are thrilled to have the chance to work with such talented writers as Adam.”
