The New York Times on Monday unveiled a new lineup for its team of reporters covering the Biden White House.

Most notably, Maggie HabermanMaggie Lindsy HabermanBiden vs. Trump is a compelling contrast for Democrats Schumer bemoans number of Republicans who believe Trump will be reinstated: 'A glaring warning' 3 in 10 Republicans believe Trump will be reinstated as president: poll MORE, best known for her coverage of former President TrumpDonald TrumpWhite House denies pausing military aid package to Ukraine Poll: 30 percent of GOP voters believe Trump will 'likely' be reinstated this year Black Secret Service agent told Trump it was offensive to hold rally in Tulsa on Juneteenth: report MORE, is moving off the White House beat and over to the newspaper's investigative/enterprise team in the Washington bureau, where she will focus on stories and projects about the new administration and the post-Trump landscape heading into the 2022 midterms and 2024 presidential campaign.

Haberman was on the 2018 New York Times team that received a Pulitzer Prize for its work about Trump’s advisers and their connections to Russia.


Michael Crowley is also leaving the White House team, according to a Times spokesman. The paper has yet to announce his new position.

Joining the team is Zolan Kanno-Youngs, formerly the Times’s Homeland Security correspondent, who will report on domestic terrorism and other domestic and international issues from a White House perspective.

Also new to the Times’s White House reporting staff is David Sanger, previously a national security correspondent, and economic correspondent Jim Tankersley. Sanger will cover national security issues, arms control and cybersecurity, while Tankersley will report on White House economic policy including the COVID-19 relief package.

The rest of the team remains unchanged, including chief White House correspondent Peter Baker, Annie Karni, Katie Rogers and Michael Shear.

News organizations often change up their White House reporting staff with the change of administrations.

The New York Times earlier this month reported that digital subscriptions are now the publication's biggest source of revenue.
