Quartz brings in Backman on finance

Melvin Backman quietly joined Quartz this week as a market and finance reporter. You'll know Backman from CNN Money, where he was previously a markets and investing reporter.

Breaking News editor Aaron Edwards responded to the news, "pardon me while I shamelessly shoutout the homie @MelvinBackman, who joined @qz this week *real lowkey like*."

"I somehow missed congrats twitter for @MelvinBackman joining @qz but I'm really excited about this development," Business Insider's Shane Ferro tweeted.

Backman replied, "as am i shane, as am i."
