About Jerry Seib

Jerry Seib P’06, ’10, ’12 is the executive Washington editor for The Wall Street Journal. He was previously the Washington bureau chief, overseeing the Journal’s news and analysis from Washington. He also developed the digital edition of the Washington bureau that includes his own column and commentaries, a real-time version of Washington Wire and other features and columns. Mr. Seib appears regularly on networks such as CNBC, Fox Business Network, CNN and the BBC as a commentator on Washington affairs. He also writes a weekly column, “Capital Journal,” which brings an insightful, predictive and original understanding to politics, national affairs and foreign policy. He also has responsibility for The Wall Street Journal/NBC News polls.

Mr. Seib also co-authored Pennsylvania Avenue, Profiles in Backroom Power: Making Washington Work Again, and is currently working on his second book. The theme of the evening is “writing through the storm: producing columns and a book amid Washington turmoil.” He will cover writing analytical columns on a daily basis for The Wall Street Journal and compare this to his approach of long form book writing adhering to his principle to think first and write second. This is what Jerry tries to practice with every column and book.
