NEW YORK, March 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST), a leading financial news and information company, has won the top honor among publications its size for banking and finance coverage from the nation's leading financial journalism organization, the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW).
Bradley Keoun's coverage of big banks' corporate governance was awarded in SABEW's 23rd annual Best in Business competition, which recognizes outstanding journalism of 2017.
SABEW judges felt Keoun's series offered a thoughtful look at under-reported corporate governance and board issues at banks. In commenting on the award, they said, "By uncovering sweetheart contracts for a Wells Fargo director, a revolving door opening to Citigroup's board, and secrecy in fixed income reporting at Goldman Sachs, Keoun showed how the largest banks are avoiding transparency."
Keoun covers banking and finance for TheStreet. A former reporter and editor for Bloomberg News in New York and Mexico City, he covered the financial crisis of 2008 and has covered U.S. banks, the energy industry and emerging markets.
"Bradley is a best-in-class journalist who digs into stories and produces thought-provoking pieces," says TheStreet's Executive Editor, Brian Sozzi. "He embodies everything that TheStreet strives for in its journalism - an honest voice with unique analysis that brings investors inside a world that is often murky and confusing."
