CNN Business reporter Sara Ashley O’Brien is leaving the news organization at the end of the week for a new opportunity.
She is a senior writer covering tech and tech culture.
She frequently writes about tech’s “unicorn” companies and their societal impact, as well as online cultural issues including harassment and revenge porn. She’s done deep dives on issues ranging from sexual harassment and assault by ride-hailing drivers to the rise of deep fakes. She’s also reported on the hot button H-1B visa, as well diversity and inclusion as it pertains to the tech industry.
O’Brien went to the University of Virginia, and got her M.S. in 2014 at Columbia University’s School of Journalism.
