ABOUT US

News is my Business was born in November 2010 out of a desire to provide no-nonsense, straightforward, English-language news relevant to Puerto Rico’s business community, in an all-digital format.

 

By providing an alternative media source that is available on a reader’s computer, smartphone and tablet computer, we aim to provide immediate access to the day-to-day changes that shape Puerto Rico’s economy. News is my Business is designed to be a tool that our island’s opinion-makers and leaders can rely on to make quick and smart decisions about their businesses and their economic futures.

 

 

Michelle Kantrow-Vázquez

Business reporter with 27 years of experience writing for weekly and daily newspapers, as well as trade publications in Puerto Rico. My list of former employers includes Caribbean Business, The San Juan Star, and the Puerto Rico Daily Sun, among others. Her areas of expertise include telecommunications, technology, retail, agriculture, tourism, banking and most other areas of the economy.

It is with much humility and pride that she has accepted 13 awards over the years, including two “Teodoro Moscoso for Excellence in Business Journalism” from the Overseas Press Club of Puerto Rico, two “Journalist of the Year” recognitions from the Puerto Rico Chamber of Commerce, and the same award from the Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association.

At present, Michelle is also a freelance reporter contributing to several publications, as well as offering editorial services, including translations and writing. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Southern Connecticut State University, in New Haven, CT.
