Former Money magazine editor helping to start personal finance site
A former editor in chief of Money magazine is helping to start a personal finance site for consumers in their 50s and 60s.
Diane Harris said the site, which will be called Considerable, will cover the opportunities, challenges and joys of this life stage.
Considerable, which is backed by venture capital investors, will launch later this summer. Harris will be the editorial director.
Harris can be reached by freelancers at email@example.com. Media pitches can be send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Harris left Money magazine in February 2017 and has been writing for NextAvenue.org.
She joined Money in 1983 as writer, left in 1992 as a senior editor and rejoined the magazine as a top editor in 2005. She became its first female editor in 2015.
In her two stints at the magazine she won a National Magazine Award for her coverage of the 1987 stock market crash, edited several award-winning series and features, and worked to develop extensions for the brand.
She has written monthly columns in Parenting and AARP magazine and is the co-author of a personal finance book for women, with Georgette Mosbacher, called “It Takes Money, Honey,” based on a feature Harris originally wrote for Money.
