Caleb Silver, the editor in chief of Investopedia, spoke with Roben Farzad of the Full Disclosure radio show about how the personal finance site is operating during COVID-19.

Investopedia was among the first online media organizations that moved to a work-from-home operations.

“It turns out, we can do that, and we can do it on a dime,” said Silver. “We have started working from home about a week or two before most major offices did just so we could see if it would work. And it turns out digital publishing and writing content and being a journalist, you can do it from home. It’s better if you can get out and knock on doors. But we can do it…And we can do this very well.”

Silver said that because Investopedia’s offices are in the Times Square area, it will hesitate to bringing its workers back to the office.

“We won’t be in a hurry to get back to work,” he said.

Silver previously worked at CNN, running its business news operation. He also worked at Bloomberg Television.
