“I think it’s the best job on the planet. You’re learning something new every day, you’re meeting fascinating people, and you’re telling stories of triumph and stories of tragedy. You get to interview people and ask them pretty much anything you want.” That’s how Susie Gharib explains why she chose journalism as a career.

After receiving a master’s degree from Columbia University, this award-winning journalist went on to become a long-time TV anchor at CNBC’s Nightly Business Report and at PBS, besides working for Fortune magazine. This year she became the Ratner Visiting Professor in the Department of Journalism and the Writing Professions of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College/CUNY.
