FBN’s Shibani Joshi appears on the cover of The Indian American magazine.
In an an article titled “Finance at Her Fingertips” in the May-June 2009 issue, Joshi discusses her childhood in Oklahoma, her career path, and two of her role models: Oprah Winfrey and fellow Indian-American tvnewser Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
Joshi is also asked for her thoughts on March’s brouhaha between CNBC’s Jim Cramer and Jon Stewart. “Look, I felt for Jim Cramer watching him on ‘The Daily Show’: he was set up to take the fall for the entire media industry…Cramer has made a number of calls that have been totally wrong. Jon Stewart was simply making him accountable for his own words. But to pin the financial crisis on the oversight of journalists isn’t appropriate.”
Shibani is scheduled to report live for FBN from India July 14-15, on how the country is faring during the global economic downturn.
