ABC’s Golodryga Talks Financial Coverage on the Menu

mmm_2-3.gifToday on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu we’re joined by ABC News financial correspondent Bianna Golodryga.

ABC’s “Money Honey” (not our nickname) discuss covering the crisis, reporting from Warren Buffett‘s investor meeting and more.

“This crisis really hit home last September, October,” she says of covering the economy recently. “It really did feel like a financial 9/11. We didn’t know what to expect, what was going to come next.”

Golodryga described the difference between working at ABC and her previous job, at CNBC. “It was really a learning experience for me…Coming here, saying ‘I only have a minute to explain something that’s very complicated,’” she said. “I was really fortunate to get a chance to break it down to the average person, because at the end of the day a lot of people even on Wall Street clearly didn’t know what was going on. So I think explaining something that’s very difficult to the average American makes things much easier for everybody.”

Also discussed: the experience of working closely with Maria Bartiromo at CNBC, her take on how newspapers need to adapt to the changes in media and the dangers of reporting abroad.
