NYT correspondent to speak about the Volkswagen ‘scandal’
Jack Ewing, European economics correspondent for The New York Times, will speak on campus on Tuesday, Oct. 10, as a Poynter Fellow in Journalism.
Ewing’s talk, “From People’s Car to Public Fraud: A Conversation About the Volkswagen Scandal,” will take place at 4:30 p.m. in Evans Hall at the Yale School of Management, 165 Whitney Ave.
Ewing joined the International Herald Tribune, now the international edition of The New York Times, in 2010. His reporting encompasses business, banking, economics, and monetary policy, and lately his coverage has expanded to include terrorism and other breaking news. He lives in Frankfurt.
Earlier this year, Ewing’s book “Faster, Higher, Farther: The Volkswagen Scandal” was published by W.W. Norton. The book follows Ewing’s reporting on the scandal for The New York Times.
At the Times, Ewing’s coverage of the European debt crisis earned him a New York Times publisher’s award in 2011.
Ewing worked at BusinessWeek magazine as the European regional editor for a decade in Frankfurt. He first went to Europe in 1993 as a German Marshall Fund journalism fellow in Brussels.
The Poynter Fellowship in Journalism was established by Nelson Poynter, who received his master’s degree in 1927 from Yale. The fellowship brings to campus journalists from a wide variety of outlets who have made significant contributions to their field. Among recent Poynter fellows are Henry Blodget, Glenn Thrush, and Graeme Wood.
