NPR biz editor Gogoi named to SABEW board
Pallavi Gogoi, chief business editor at National Public Radio, has been appointed to the board of governors of the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing.
Gogoi leads the network’s coverage of the most essential financial, economic, technology and media stories of the day.
Gogoi has been appointed to the board seat previously occupied by Marilyn Geewax, former senior business editor for NPR. Geewax is teaching this semester in Beijing at Tsinghua University’s Global Business Journalism Program.
“I have always believed strongly in my mission as a journalist, in the pursuit of truth and in strengthening the fabric of democracy,” said Gogoi in a statement. “There is no better way to help the cause than to give back. I am thrilled to be joining the board of SABEW, whose work in journalism couldn’t be more important at this time in history.”
Before joining NPR in 2017, Gogoi was a senior editor at CNN Money, where she oversaw a team covering business news, markets and the economy. Prior to that, she was a national business correspondent at The Associated Press, where her work on mortgage robo-signing was the subject of a Senate hearing.
At USA Today, she covered the financial crisis and bank bailouts. At Business Week, she wrote high-impact stories that led to changes at Walmart, Edelman and The Washington Post.
“We’re very pleased that Pallavi is joining the SABEW board, bringing her own unique and special talents and experiences to our organization. Her employer, NPR, is highly respected for the quality of its excellent work over many decades,” said Mark Hamrick, SABEW president and Bankrate.com senior economic analyst and Washington bureau chief, in a statement.
