Amy Chozick is a New York-based writer-at-large for The New York Times and a frequent contributor to the Times Magazine, writing about the personalities and power struggles in business, politics and media. Most recently, she led the paper's coverage of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. She is the author of "Chasing Hillary," a memoir from HarperCollins.
Before politics, Ms. Chozick was a business reporter at The Times. She covered the world's largest media companies, including extensive reporting in London on the phone hacking scandal at Rupert Murdoch's British tabloids. In 2012, Ms. Chozick got the first interview with Chelsea Clinton and traveled to Africa with Bill Clinton to write a front-page story about Mr. Clinton's post presidency.
Prior to joining the Times in 2011, Ms. Chozick spent eight years at The Wall Street Journal. At the Journal, she held posts including a foreign correspondent based in Tokyo.
After her adventures in Asia, Ms. Chozick got another culture shock: She went straight to Iowa to serve as a political reporter, a position that took her to 48 states traveling with Mrs. Clinton and Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaigns.
In 2017, Ms. Chozick received the William Randolph Hearst Fellows Award. She is also the recipient of a Front Page Award for beat reporting and has been recognized by the Society for Feature Journalism Excellence-in-Features Writing Competition. Ms. Chozick served as a consultant on the Netflix political drama, “House of Cards,” advising the writers on the development of the female journalist characters. She was recently profiled in Vogue and Cosmopolitan and interviewed on Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
Born in San Antonio, Ms. Chozick, a fifth-generation Texan Jew, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. She moved to New York in 2001 with no job, no apartment and a stack of clips from The Daily Texan.
