Biography

Kenneth Rapoza writes daily for Forbes, covering primarily business, finance and some geopolitics regarding Brazil, Russia, India and China. Also ex-WSJer. Lucky enough to give me opinion from time to time, but no advocacy hack. Yuck.

What was your first job as a journalist?

WBUR-FM, Boston's NPR Station. I wrote copy for Morning Edition.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes.

How is social media changing news?

Makes everything faster, often gimmicky. Also makes it a popularity contest. No, I'm not always pleased about that.
