Director of News
An old soul working in new media, Zach leads Newsy's Washington, D.C. bureau and makes visual stories about policy, data and people. He's launched several projects and series that received industry recognition, including two Edward R. Murrow awards and an Emmy nomination. Among those projects is Newsy's first-of-its-kind interactive fact check, Check 2016. In the field, Zach has reported from Paris, Havana and across the country on the campaign trail. Outside the office, he enjoys traveling, sailing and a fine cardigan. Follow him on Twitter at @zachtoombs.
