November 16th: Robert Weisman, Boston Globe

Please RSVP here for Boston Bridge Meeting on Wednesday, November 16 at 6pm.

We will hear from Robert Weisman of the Boston Globe.

Robert Weisman reports on Baby Boomers — their work, health, money, and lifestyle — and life after 50. He writes about retirement and reinvention, aging, and second acts. In his 22 years at The Globe, he has worked as a technology editor and a business writer covering high-tech and venture capital, management issues, hospitals, health care, and life sciences. Before coming to The Globe, he was a business editor and reporter for the Seattle Times, Hartford Courant, and New Haven Register. He is a native of Norwich, Conn., and a graduate of Boston University.

Topic: How I conceived and launched an Age Beat as part of The Globe’s beat reinvention initiative in 2017 and discovered a large audience for stories on getting older. It turns out there’s been so much to write about that my constant challenge is to figure out which stories are most important and will most interest our readers.
