Nashville Biz Journal hires Overholt as health care/tech reporter
Emily Overholt has been hired by the Nashville Business Journal as its health care and technology reporter.
She replaces Eleanor Kennedy, who has moved to the paper’s entertainment industry beat.
Editor Lori Becker writes, “She’ll be covering the news that matters most to you from our region’s heavyweight health care industry and its fast-emerging tech sector. It’s her job to help you navigate these two connected, yet vastly different worlds: legacy players and scrappy upstarts, behemoths of industry and would-be disruptors.
“To be clear, we didn’t hire an Olympic swimmer. While our Emily is uber competitive, she’s not to be confused with the medal-winning swimmer from Canada.
“Emily comes to us from The Associated Press, where she worked the past two years as an associate editor in the news giant’s West desk in Phoenix, editing and writing stories from a 13-state region. An Arizona native, she previously interned at the Phoenix Business Journal, a sister publication to the NBJ, and was a correspondent for the Boston Globe.
“A graduate of Boston University, Emily also was editor-in-chief of the university’s student newspaper.”
