Redhead of the Week a Princeton Grad

For those of us actively involved in the stock and bond markets, TV has been a real drag for months. Every day, another disaster, another reason for paper assets (and real property) to decline in value. Who am I kidding? Most of the time, people with stock portfolios have been jumping up and down, screaming at the television. Only one bright spot has shown through the gloom:

JULIA BOORSTIN, CNBC Media and Entertainment Reporter, joined CNBC in May 2006 as a general assignment reporter. In December 2006, Boorstin became CNBC's media and entertainment reporter working from CNBC's Los Angeles Bureau. Boorstin covers media with a special focus on the intersection of media and technology.

Julia Boorstin joined CNBC from Fortune magazine where she was a business writer and reporter since 2000, covering a wide range of stories on everything from media companies to retail to business trends. During that time, she was also a contributor to "Street Life," a live market wrap-up segment on CNN Headline News.

In 2003, 2004 and 2006, The Journalist and Financial Reporting newsletter named Boorstin to the "TJFR 30 under 30" list of the most promising business journalists under 30 years old. She has also worked for the State Department's delegation to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (O.E.C.D.) and for Vice President Gore's Domestic Policy office.

She graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in history. She was also an editor on The Daily Princetonian.
