Connecting Local Business to the Larger Trends that Matter

A Conversation with Kim Moore, Editor of Oregon Business Magazine

After spending five years covering New York financial news, Kim Moore needed a change of pace. As a breaking news reporter, Kim’s job was to cultivate knowledgeable sources among the traders, investors and hedge fund managers working in the corporate loan and high-yield debt markets. These financial sectors were very busy during the mid-2000s, so there was a lot of news to break. During her time with Thomson Reuters, Kim began the publication’s first coverage of the credit default swaps that helped trigger the Great Recession.
