Joshi: “No Such Thing As Fluffy Business News”

joshi_7-7.jpgFox Business Network correspondent Shibani Joshi is profiled in this month’s issue of Oklahoma Today, and the Oklahoma City native traces her path to the business network.

Joshi was hired from ABC News by FBN EVP Kevin Magee. “I hired Shibani because she impressed me by the fact that she didn’t want to be on TV as much as she wanted to be in business news journalism,” he said. “She comes to the table with very good skills at taking an issue and breaking it down so we can all understand it.”

Joshi was one of the FBN “Money Honey”‘s (obligatory Maria Bartiromo shout out) drooled over by Ben Stein in a recent Best Life Magazine article, and Joshi responds to Stein and others.

“It’s flattering but I try not to focus on that too much,” she says. “It distracts me from doing what I care about — bringing an intelligent and insightful perspective to the table. There is no such thing as fluffy business news.”
