Brooke Masters broke her first corporate scandal as a college student writing for the Harvard Crimson. She has continued to hold the powerful accountable through decades of work at the Washington Post and the Financial Times. Brooke shares how she landed front-page stories, her advice to young reporters now, and the differences between reporting (and living) on both sides of the Pond. Brooke also served as the “bouncer” of the Financial Times’s hottest club – the opinion page – and gives anyone looking to place an op-ed some tips on how to score. We hear about all that plus the Martha Stewart trial, Elliot Spitzer’s ups and downs, her beloved New York Mets on this edition of Press Profiles.
