  • By Newmark J-School Staff

After five years at Bloomberg TV, Cristina Alesci, ’08, has moved over to CNN and the CNNMoney team as a correspondent.

Caleb Silver, CNN director of U.S. business news, said Alesci joins their talented roster of business news reporters and anchors as they reshape and relaunch CNNMoney across all platforms to deliver the money news that matters most. “Cristina was responsible for breaking news on some of the biggest and most competitive takeover battles, private equity deals and bankruptcies of the last five years, including the struggle for Dell, the buyout of Neiman Marcus and the collapse of MF Global,” Silver said.

She also covered some of the hottest initial public offerings since the financial crisis, including Facebook, Twitter, and SeaWorld.

Her extensive reporting on private equity and the issue of carried interest also contributed to the debate on income tax reform during the 2012 presidential election and was cited by numerous publications and other media organizations.

Before joining Bloomberg, Cristina worked at Pfizer Inc. in New York and law firm Sidley Austin LLP. She also holds a bachelor of science in criminal justice from Pace University, where she graduated magna cum laude and holds a post-baccalaureate certificate in business from Columbia University.
