CNBC.com managing editor Jeffrey McCracken sent out the following on Friday:
I want to let everyone know about a few recent additions to the CNBC.com newsroom.
Hakyung Kim has been hired as an associate reporter for the markets and PRO team. She graduated from NYU Stern in 2022, where she pursued a concentration in econometrics and quantitative economics with a minor in Mandarin.
She previously served as an Overseas Press Club Foundation Fellow at The Wall Street Journal, where she covered South Korean politics and economics. Before that, she worked as a Seoul foreign bureau intern at NPR.
Hakyung was born in Seoul and grew up in Princeton, New Jersey. In her spare time, she enjoys reading fiction, practicing yoga, and cooking. She mastered the Korean and English languages, so she’s moving on to Mandarin and Russian.
Rohan Goswami has been hired as an associate reporter covering technology and general news. He previously served as part of our digital rotation program.
Rohan is a native of Westport, Connecticut. He graduated from Tulane University in 2022 with a bachelor’s degree in history. He also worked at Tulane’s student newspaper, The Tulane Hullabaloo (great name).
When not writing about crypto, Roblox or the latest tech company job cuts, he spends his time cooking, obsessing over HBO’s Succession and reading all about corporate fraud or the Hudson River Valley. He lives on the Upper East Side with his cat, Mr. Big.
Annika Kim Constantino has been hired as an associate reporter covering biotech and the pharmaceutical industry. She previously served as part of our digital rotation program after interning with CNBC.com in 2021 on the politics team.
Annika grew up in San Diego. She often visits the Philippines, where most of her extended family lives. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley last May, studying journalism and music while working at The Daily Californian, the student-run newspaper.
In her free time, she enjoys playing the piano, cello and guitar, running, and going to concerts. She watched the Golden State Warriors with fervent hope – but that came to an end sooner than she’d wanted.
We also have hired Brian Evans as a markets and PRO reporter. Previously, he worked as a markets reporter at Insider; he also interned at CoinDesk and Inc. Magazine. He got his master’s from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY in New York with a focus on business and economics reporting.
Brian grew up in Scarsdale, New York, and now lives in White Plains.
He enjoys coaching wrestling, reading about economics, and cooking. He happily spends money on his vinyl collection and is currently looking for tips on how to marinate chicken.
Please welcome all of them to the CNBC.com newsroom.
