Bryan Metzger is an award-winning journalist covering politics at Insider with a focus on the halls of Congress.
As a Capitol Hill reporter, he’s covered both the news of the day and major political events — including the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the work of the January 6th Committee, and the onset of the war in Ukraine — all while making time for enterprise reporting.
As part of Insider’s award-winning “Conflicted Congress” team, he’s closely reported on the movement to ban members of Congress from trading stocks, helping to trigger a nation-wide conversation on the topic.
He's also made it onto the campaign trail, covering Republican primary campaigns in Arizona.
Previously, he covered money in politics, transparency, lobbying, and democracy issues at New Mexico in Depth, where his reporting won first place in politics news reporting in SPJ Colorado’s “Top of the Rockies” contest in both 2021 and 2022. He has also written for POLITICO Magazine and Responsible Statecraft.
Bryan grew up in Albuquerque, NM and attended Stanford University.
