Pitt Family Foundation Speaker Series Presents Ezra Klein (Virtual)

When: February 23, 2021 12:15pm to 1:15pm

Ezra Klein will present for the Pitt Family Foundation Speaker Series.

About Ezra Klein:

Ezra Klein is founder and Editor-at-large of Vox-a platform dedicated to explaining the news. Launched in April 2014, Vox has grown at a startling rate: it now receives more than 20 million unique visitors monthly and leads Comscore's politics category. Vox was the first online-only news publication to land an interview with former President Barack Obama. Klein is also a policy analyst for MSNBC, where his commentary focuses on, as he describes it "domestic and economic policy-making, as well as the political system that's constantly screwing it up." Prior to starting Vox, Klein oversaw The Washington Post's "Wonkblog" and was a columnist for Bloomberg News. In 2012, GQ named Klein as one of the "50 Most Powerful People in Washington," saying "as proprietor of the Post's 'Wonkblog', Klein has become a singular journalistic force" and Esquire named him as one of "79 Things We Can All Agree On" saying, "Ezra Klein gives economics columnists a good name." In 2014, Vanity Fair named him one of the media's "new disrupters." He likes graphs and appendix tables, and he lives in Washington.
