Steve Forbes, Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Magazine

In 1917, a partnership of Walter Drey, general manager of the Magazine of Wall Street, and business reporter B.C. Forbes formed Forbes Magazine. The magazine did well through the 1920s, but suffered through the Great Depression alongside many other businesses. Forbes’ grandson, Steve Forbes, is Editor-in-Chief of the magazine and Chair and CEO of Forbes Media LLC. He spoke with WUOT’s Chrissy Keuper about his family’s financial philosophies, inflation, and the importance of investments for the average American.

Chrissy is WUOT's News Director and host of monthly public affairs talk show Dialogue. Her first job with the station was as weekend student announcer while earning her bachelor's in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee. She has been the station's local host for NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered news programs; occasionally fills in as host for WUOT's Morning and Afternoon Concerts; and has won multiple awards for her interviews, feature stories, and Dialogue.
