937: Diane Harris, Award-Winning Personal Finance Journalist
Empathy, experience, and expertise; just a few of the reasons why our guest today is one of the leading personal finance authorities. Welcome to So Money, everybody. I'm your host, Farnoosh Torabi. Diane Harris was the first woman ever to be appointed editor-in-chief of Money Magazine. There, she helped the brand transition to the digital world with money.com and brought important and sometimes taboo issues related to women and money to the forefront. After 22 years at Money, she is now one of the top editors at Newsweek.
Her childhood made a significant impact on her desire to help others with their finances. We begin our conversation talking about a recent cover story for Newsweek that Diane wrote, the topic, the biggest myths about student loans. I was shocked. So much to discuss.
