Daniel Malloy is the managing editor at the Atlantic Council, helping oversee the Council’s editorial products from short-form articles and in-depth reports to email newsletters.

He joined the Council in 2021 after a fifteen-year journalism career that took him from the Oval Office to the depths of a West Virginia coal mine, and to the jungles of Southeast Asia. Most recently, Malloy was a senior editor at OZY Media, where he helped oversee the startup digital-media company’s daily email newsletters and led US political coverage.

Previously, Malloy worked for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as a Washington correspondent, covering Capitol Hill and beyond for a local audience—and hitting the presidential campaign trail in the 2008, 2012, and 2016 election cycles. He also worked as a freelance foreign correspondent based in Luang Prabang, Laos, and traveling around Southeast Asia. His Lao language skills are now a bit rusty, but he can still exchange pleasantries.

Malloy graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in journalism.
