Eamon Javers joined CNBC in June 2010 as a Washington reporter based at the bureau in the nation's capital. He appears on CNBC's Business Day programming.

Previously, Javers was a White House reporter for Politico, where he covered the intersection of Wall Street and Washington.

Prior to joining Politico, Javers was a Washington correspondent for BusinessWeek magazine writing extensively about Washington lobbying, including the Jack Abramoff scandal and unearthed previously unknown incidents of corporate espionage. He also was an on-air correspondent for CNBC, where he covered the intersection of business and politics. Javers' articles have appeared in Fortune, Money, Congressional Quarterly and Slate.com. He began his career at The Hill, a weekly newspaper (and website) covering Congress.

He has appeared as an analyst on each of the major broadcast networks, all of the major cable television news networks, "News Hour with Jim Lehrer" on PBS, the BBC and National Public Radio. He also is a regular panelist on "Washington Week with Gwen Ifill" on PBS.

In 2014, Javers was named a finalist in the Gerald Loeb Awards explanatory category for his coverage of how market-moving financial data is released. In 2006, Javers received an Award of Distinction in investigative journalism from the Medill School of Journalism. He graduated from Colgate University in Hamilton, N.Y.
