Yahoo Finance has hired Josh Lipton as co-anchor of “Closing Bell” alongside veteran financial journalist Julie Hyman.
Lipton, a senior financial journalist with over 20 years of reporting experience, will start his hosting duties on Sept. 18.
Previously, he served as a technology correspondent for over eight years at CNBC and held editorial roles at Bloomberg and Forbes. He most recently held a position in corporate communications at Apple before making his return to reporting.
“My goal as a reporter has always been to offer viewers the best market analysis and industry insight,” said Lipton in a statement. “Joining Yahoo Finance at the outset of a major reinvestment in its content programming will provide me with a platform to help people become better informed and properly equipped with the financial knowledge required to thrive in today’s turbulent economy.”
