Earlier this year, rbb was pleased to present the first Larry Birger Young Business Journalist prize at The Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) annual conference in Phoenix. The winner was Mina Kimes, an enterprise investigative reporter for Bloomberg News.
The Larry Birger Award recognizes the nation’s top young business journalist, up to the age of 30. Kimes was selected because of her stellar work over her seven-year career, including her investigative pieces at both Bloomberg News and Fortune on abuse in the medical industry and the exploitation of subordinates for profit in large American corporations.
I had the privilege to turn the tides on our inaugural award winner and ask her a few questions about her career and journalism in America.
