Bloomberg recruits Omeokwe to report on Federal Reserve and economy

Amara Omeokwe has joined Bloomberg News to cover the Federal Reserve Board and the economy. She was previously a Wall Street Journal economics reporter before being laid off earlier this year. Prior to her time at the Journal in 2019, Omeokwe worked on NPR’s “Morning Edition,” and as a video journalist/reporter at Time Warner Cable News in North Carolina. In this role, she covered general assignments and breaking news stories, and was the lead business reporter in the Greensboro newsroom.

Additionally, Omeokwe helped launch and served as executive producer on several episodes of “True Story,” a video web series from theGrio.com that focused on issues impacting the African-American community. She began her news career at NBC Universal, moving up from the East Coast Page Program to producing at CNBC. During her four years at CNBC, Omeokwe covered various financial topics such as Wall Street banks, M&A, IPOs, and daily market activities in stocks, bonds, and options. A native New Yorker, she holds a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University.

Chris Roush, a former dean of the School of Communications at Quinnipiac University, is a business journalist with experience at Bloomberg News, Businessweek, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Tampa Tribune, and the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. He is the author of two books, “Show me the Money: Writing Business and Economics Stories for Mass Communication” and “Thinking Things Over,” a biography of former Wall Street Journal editor Vermont Royster.
