The 2015 Page One Banquet will celebrate the best in Minnesota journalism from 2014!
We are excited to welcome keynote speaker, Gretchen Morgenson, assistant business and financial editor and a columnist at the New York Times. Ms. Morgenson has covered the world financial markets for the Times since May 1998 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for her “trenchant and incisive” coverage of Wall Street.
Ms. Morgenson is the co-author of “Reckless Endangerment,” published by Times Books in 2011; author of “Forbes Great Minds Of Business,” published by John Wiley & Co., in 1997; and co-author of “The Woman’s Guide to the Stock Market,” published by Harmony Books in 1981.
Ms. Morgenson joined The Times as assistant business and financial editor in May 1998. Previously, she was assistant managing editor at Forbes magazine since rejoining the magazine in March 1996. Before that, she was the press secretary for the Forbes for President campaign from September 1995 to March 1996.
Born in State College, Penn., on January 2, 1956, Ms. Morgenson received a B.A. degree in English and history from Saint Olaf College, Northfield Minn., in 1976.
