Jeff Cox is a finance editor with CNBC.com where he covers all aspects of the markets and monitors coverage of the financial markets and Wall Street. His stories are routinely among the most-read items on the site each day as he interviews some of the smartest and most well-respected analysts and advisors in the financial world.
Over the course of a journalism career that began in 1987, Cox has covered everything from the collapse of the financial system to presidential politics to local government battles in his native Pennsylvania.
Cox joined CNBC in 2007 just as the worst of the credit crisis was about to explode and as the website was still in the infancy of its new rollout.
He helped chronicle the collapse of Bear Stearns and then Lehman Brothers, writing insightful and important stories about the demise of some of Wall Street's leading names and how investors could navigate their way through the crisis. His articles are often picked up by other CNBC syndication partners such as Yahoo and AOL Money and have been cited in a number of national publications, including USA Today.
Prior to coming to CNBC, Cox worked at CNNMoney where he wrote a series of analyses, which were the first to tie the surging demand for ethanol to rising prices at the supermarket. He wrote extensively on alternative energy while at CNN and covered technology as well.
In his print career, Cox's writing and editing projects were honored on multiple occasions by the New Jersey Press Association and Pennsylvania Newspaper Association, which cited him twice for commentary, including a series of columns he wrote after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
He also served as lead editor for award-winning projects on gangs, child molestation and the cost of education, a project on which he spoke at Columbia University. The cost of education series was honored by the NJPA for public service journalism.
In all, Cox spent 18 years in print, including nine years in senior editing positions.
A graduate of Bloomsburg University, Cox lives in Pennsylvania, on the Delaware River, with his wife, Mary Ellen.
