Fox Biz's Joshi is relaying information for mom and dad

July 8, 2008

Fox Business Network reporter Shibani Joshi is profiled in the July/August issue of Oklahoma Today magazine about how she got into business journalism. Joshi is from Oklahoma.

Shibani JoshiIn a cover story titled “Money Honey,” Brooke Adcox writes, “Joshi spent two years working one hundred-hour weeks on Wall Street before taking a year to travel abroad.  She spent time in Asia and India, then returned to New York City to work as a production assistant on CNN’s now-defunct financial network.  Joshi soon was accepted into the Harvard Business School graduate program, where she received an MBA in 2004.

“After graduation, Joshi accepted positions at ImaginAsian TV, Times Now, News 12 Westchester, Reuters Television, and ABC News before landing her current on-air gig at the FOX Business Network in fall 2007.

“‘The themes of business and media have always been in my life.  A lot of times I would do one of the other, and now I do both,’ says Joshi.  ‘When I relay information, I try to make it as easy for my mom and dad to understand as it is for a trader on Wall Street.’

“Joshi’s appeal is as easy to understand as the news she delivers.  One of the FOX Business Network anchors referred to by Ben Stein and others as ‘money honeys,’ Joshi is a striking beauty.  That doesn’t deter her, however, from a larger purpose.”
