CNBC.com hires markets reporter, personal finance reporter
CNBC.com managing editor Jeff McCracken sent out the following announcement on Friday:
I am pleased to announce two new hires coming to the CNBC.com newsroom.
First, Tanaya Macheel joins the markets team as a reporter working on CNBC PRO, our subscription investor service. Tanaya will report to Markets Editor John Melloy and spend a lot of time covering the future of retail investing.
Tanaya comes to us from Blockworks, where she covered bitcoin and other digital currencies for institutional investors. Prior to Blockworks, she reported on fintech at Cheddar and co-anchored its weekly cryptocurrency show, “The Crypto Craze.”
She’s also worked at several industry publications, including CoinDesk, American Banker and Digiday, where she covered financial services and the future of money – including cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, retail banking and investing companies.
A San Francisco native, Tanaya moved to New York to study economics at NYU. She has lived in Manhattan for 10 years and counting.
After work, you can often find her teaching or taking a barre class at The Bar Method. She’s also a member of the Young Professionals Board of Figure Skating in Harlem, an organization for girls of color that provides academic support and leadership development in addition to on-ice training.
Another new hire for CNBC.com is Kate Dore, who joins us as a reporter on the personal finance team, covering income tax planning, among other things. She will report to Personal Finance Editor Jim Pavia.
Prior to CNBC, she was a freelance contributor for Lifehacker, Business Insider, Investopedia and Credit Karma. Her work has also appeared in Financial Planning magazine.
Kate grew up in Newburyport, Massachusetts, which says it is the birthplace of the U.S. Coast Guard, and graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
Kate has taken a great interest in personal finance for many years. She also earned a certificate in Financial Planning from Belmont University and is a candidate for CFP certification. Kate has also taught financial literacy in public schools with Junior Achievement.
She currently resides in Nashville, where she is part of the Steering Committee for The Human Rights Campaign. In her spare time, Kate loves listening to live music, traveling, gardening and exploring local food scenes.
Please welcome them both to the CNBC.com newsroom.
