Shibani Joshi – Business Anchor, National News Correspondent, Tech Reporter, Speaker and Creator/Editor of ShibanionTech.com
Shibani on Tech is a unique destination for stories at the intersection of technology and daily life. Launched in the summer of 2014, the site is the creation of technology and business journalist Shibani Joshi, whose goal is to present only those tech products and stories that are worth it — the stuff that makes life easier, more stylish, interesting, and fun.
Prior to launching Shibani on Tech, Shibani worked at Fox Business Network (FBN) and Fox News Channel, where she started her TV career as a general reporter with the network’s launch in September 2007. Shibani’s experience covering technology began on the floor of the NASDAQ, where she reported on daily market moves of large cap technology firms and the big stories of the day. Shibani’s role at Fox later grew to anchoring a daily markets show and her own dedicated technology segment, “Joshi on Tech”, which aired across the network on TV as well as in a tech column on the web.
In her nearly 6-year tenure at Fox, Shibani grew to become the network’s dedicated on-air technology reporter. On air, Shibani produced her own daily technology segment, covering everything from quarterly earnings to major industry mergers and gadget reviews. She contributed regularly to segments on local Fox affiliate stations and on Fox Radio across the country, and frequently appeared on Fox News Channel programs including “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” “Fox and Friends,” “Fox Report” and “Hannity.” She has also contributed to programs such as “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider.”
Shibani’s experience includes conducting exclusive interviews with large cap tech CEOs from companies such as Adobe, Qualcomm, Sony, Blackberry and eBay. She has also interviewed executives from influential start-ups like Twitter, Square, Gilt, Uber, Dropbox, Rent the Runway and Angie’s List. Shibani has covered live tech events such as CES and Google I/O conferences; invite-only product unveilings from Amazon, Google and Apple; the death of Steve Jobs; and Facebook’s historic IPO.
Shibani brings real-world experience in business and technology to her work as a journalist. She began her career as an investment banking analyst at Morgan Stanley. From 2004 to 2006, Shibani held the position of Senior Manager of Digital Strategy at Disney/ABC Media Networks, where she worked on the launch of ABC News Now. She helped develop the firm’s global digital media strategy, working closely with cable and mobile operators to develop VOD and live streaming programming options.
Shibani has been listed by Business Insider and CBS Interactive/TechRepublic as “one to follow” on Twitter. She has been featured in Maxim magazine and Men’s Health, made Anokhi Magazine’s “Sexy and Successful”, listed as a “Rising Star” by 02163 (Harvard-affiliated), and much more.
Joshi recently partnered with the Dean of the University of Oklahoma’s Price College of Business to co-teach a course on Entrepreneurship. She also frequently moderates conference panels and is asked to speak publicly across the country.
Shibani is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and holds an MBA from The Harvard Business School. She currently lives in San Diego with her husband and their three children. Shibani is a native of Oklahoma City, and her parents are originally from Pune, India.
