Agri-Pulse is pleased to welcome Rebekah Alvey as an associate editor.

Alvey, who has experience covering energy and environment issues and Capitol Hill, comes to Agri-Pulse from Politico’s E&E News, where she reported on a broad swath of issues including electric vehicles and endangered species regulation, and she helped cover the House speaker race in October 2023. She earlier learned her way around Capitol Hill while with the Washington bureau of the Dallas Morning News, where she covered the Texas congressional delegation.

“We are thrilled to have Rebekah join our team and will be able to hit the ground running,” said Editor Sara Wyant. “We look forward to having her apply her data journalism skills to the complex agriculture, renewable energy, environment and food topics we cover.”

Alvey earned degrees in journalism and Arabic from Western Kentucky University, while handling multiple leadership roles at the student newspaper, the College Heights Herald. During her undergraduate studies, she spent a semester abroad at the Danish School of Media and Journalism, where she developed an interest in data journalism and political reporting. She later participated in the Politico Journalism Institute and eventually got a masters in journalism from American University.
