Robert Costa Biography

Robert Costa is a National Political Reporter for The Washington Post, where he has been a journalist since 2014. Covering the White House, Congress, and national campaigns, Costa demystifies the inner workings of American democracy, using revealing and vivid anecdotes to take readers behind the scenes as he paints a riveting portrait of the key players, policies, and moments shaping political news.

Costa’s coverage of the Trump presidency and his sourcing at the highest levels has drawn wide notice. As Philadelphia Magazine wrote, “He’s the guy Trump called to say that the health care bill was dead.”

And with a no-frills interview style, Costa regularly hosts notable, in-depth newsmaker interviews for Washington Post Live. Recent guests have included Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, senior White House policy advisors, numerous Democratic presidential candidates, and some of the nation’s top governors and mayors during the coronavirus pandemic.

Costa has also become one of the most recognizable faces of news as a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, where he regularly appears on “Meet the Press,” “Morning Joe,” and “The 11th Hour” to share his latest reporting.

As Moderator and Managing Editor of Washington Week since 2017, the Peabody Award-winning news analysis series on PBS, he has increased the show’s ratings with his sharp questions and political insights. The Associated Press has called the national program “satisfyingly wonkish… and amid a TV sea of partisan megaphones and questions about journalism’s role, especially important.”

A native of Yardley, Pennsylvania, Costa earned a master’s degree in 2009 from the University of Cambridge, where he focused on politics. A year earlier, he earned a bachelor’s degree in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame, where he served as a member of the board of trustees from 2014 to 2017.
