Business journalist Erika Vujnovich has been hired as a member of The Journal News’ Tax Watch team, where she will write about how to teach their children about financial topics for the New York state paper.

Cara Matthews of the paper writes, “Kids hear people talk about money, the economy, housing and other financial issues all the time, said Vujnovich, 38. ‘We have a responsibility to educate our kids about this sooner rather than later,’ she said.

“Her answers to readers’ financial questions will appear twice monthly on the Tax Watch page, which runs Fridays in the newspaper and online at lohud.com.

“‘We want to hear from our readers in terms of as parents what are some of their concerns about money or talking about money or questions that they get from their kids,’ she said.

“Vujnovich, a graduate of Brown University, does marketing with Thomson Reuters financial division. She is a former writer and producer at CNNfn (financial news), CNBC and Bloomberg. She is a member of the New York Financial Writers’ Association and received a 30 under 30 financial journalism award from the TJFR Group Inc., the parent company of NewsBios.”
