Amy Chozick is a national political reporter at The New York Times with a focus on covering Hillary Clinton. Amy has written extensively about the Clintons since 2007 when she began covering the presidential campaign, then with The Wall Street Journal. She is also a frequent contributor to The New York Times Magazine.
Amy joined The New York Times to cover corporate media in 2011 and has chronicled major developments and corner office intrigue among the industry’s power brokers. Her coverage includes stories on terminal snooping at Bloomberg LP and phone hacking at News Corporation. In between media stories, she wrote about politics, international affairs and culture. In 2012, Amy traveled to Africa with Bill Clinton to write the front-page curtain raiser to Mr. Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention. Her articles have also appeared in The Times’ Dining, Styles and Arts & Leisure sections. In June 2013, Amy’s profile of Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales appeared on the cover of The Times magazine.
Before joining The Times, Amy spent eight years at The Wall Street Journal where she held posts including foreign correspondent based in Tokyo, national political correspondent and a features writer covering Hollywood. Journalism has taken Amy from the neon of Tokyo and the tranquility of the Japanese countryside to car shows in Shenzhen and dumpling joints in Shanghai. As a member of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's traveling press during the 2008 campaign she rode on oddly aromatic campaign busses in 48 states and covered more than 20 debates ("You're likable enough, Hillary.") She covered the entertainment industry traversing Hollywood's back lots, studio sets and corner offices. Along the way, Amy picked up a Front Page Award for beat reporting for her in-depth stories on the television industry and has been recognized by the Society for Features Journalism Excellence-in-Features Writing Competition.
She began her journalism career by moving to New York with no job, no apartment and a stack of clips from The Daily Texan.
A South Texas native, Amy lives in New York with her husband, Robert Ennis.
