Enterprise Insider hires Ito to cowl the brand new economic system


Aki Ito

Business Insider has hired Aki Ito as a senior correspondent covering the new economy.

Ito worked for Bloomberg News for 10 years, starting in the Tokyo bureau as an intern, and then as a reporter for the economics team there. She moved to the San Francisco newsroom in 2012 to cover the Federal Reserve, and then went on to co-lead the launch of the economics vertical Benchmark.

In 2016, she participated in Bloomberg’s job swap program to serve as interim Tokyo bureau chief, and after that became the digital editor for Bloomberg’s technology team. Most recently, she was the host of the docuseries Next Jobs and the co-host of the podcast Decrypted.

Her journalism has won awards from organizations including SABEW, the San Francisco Press Club, the New York Press Club, SPJ Nor-Cal, the Institute on Political Journalism, the Society of Publishers in Asia, and the Webbys.

She left Bloomberg in January 2020 to take a year off with her wife. At Business Insider, she’ll be focusing on features about the labor market and workplace trends.
