Talking Biz News Names Business Journalist of The Year

David Benoit is honored.

Talking Biz News has named David Benoit its Business Journalist of The Year.

Benoit, currently an activism reporter for The Wall Street Journal, was honored “because his outstanding coverage has been consistent across the year and contains a mixture of scoops and deep dives into the issues on his shareholder activist beat.”

Benoit joined Dow Jones Newswire as a banking reporter in 2010. He moved to the Journal—on the deals beat—in 2012.

“The amazing thing about David is that he gets scoops and he has this great feature writing capability,” Journal deals editor Dana Cimilluca told Talking Biz News. “He’s rare in that he is very good at both things.”
