Michael B. Sauter

Michael Sauter is managing editor at 24/7 Wall St., where he has helped develop the site’s reputation as a respected source of data journalism and longform analysis for the better part of a decade.

Since he joined the site in 2010, which at the time focused on daily stock trading news, he has worked to build from the ground up 24/7 Wall St.’s data journalism product. The product of that effort, the site’s special reports section, delivers high-quality, informative, and accessible content on important socioeconomic issues, health, the environment and almost anything that can be quantified that has relevance to the state of the world today. In the near-decade he has spent as a writer, editor and manager, he has watched the site grow from a three-employee operation in a New York City apartment to an established news organization read by tens of millions each month.

Michael’s work has been covered in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, The Atlantic, Bloomberg, Forbes, and many others.
