David Gura is a reporter for Marketplace, based in the Washington, D.C. bureau. He regularly reports on Congress and the White House, economic and fiscal policy and the implementation of financial reform. Gura joined Marketplace in 2010, and enjoys helping listeners make sense of some of the biggest economic stories today. He likes the process of diving headfirst into a story and putting it together under a tight deadline, and tries to heed a piece of advice from George Packer, staff writer for The New Yorker: “Cover Washington as if it’s a foreign capital.” Prior to joining Marketplace, Gura worked at NPR as an editor and a producer, and as a reporter for “The Two-Way,” NPR’s news blog. Gura got his start in public radio in his hometown of Chapel Hill, N.C., as an intern for “The State of Things” at North Carolina Public Radio – WUNC.   Gura has received fellowships from Stanford University and the National Constitution Center. He has also participated in conferences organized by the French-American Foundation and Washington University in St. Louis.   Gura attended Cornell University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in history and American studies, with a concentration in Latin-American studies. He attended the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, from which he received a master’s degree.
