Tausche covers the banking industry, as well as corporate finance and deals—and frequently breaks news. Outside her primary beats, she has covered a wide variety of high-profile stories, including the Facebook IPO, the Occupy Wall Street movement, the MF Global bankruptcy and the UK phone hacking scandal.
She reports across NBC properties as a contributor to MSNBC, "TODAY" and "Nightly News with Brian Williams." In addition to reporting, Tausche serves as a substitute anchor for flagship CNBC programs "Squawk Box," "Squawk on the Street" and "Power Lunch."
Previously, Tausche was based in London as the assistant editor of DealReporter, a Financial Times-owned publication, covering mergers and acquisitions. Prior to DealReporter, she worked on the consumer and retail beat at Bloomberg News. She began her career in journalism at the Brussels bureau of The Associated Press, where her bilingual interview experience included Jacques Chirac and Peter Mandelson.
An Atlanta native, Tausche graduated with honors in business journalism and international politics from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was an Ameel J. Fisher scholar. She sits on the alumni boards of the UNC journalism school and the Steamboat Foundation, where she was a fellow.
