INews Welcomes a Veteran MF Columnist

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

A veteran mutual fund columnist just signed on with an advisor-focused trade publication.

John Waggoner joined Crain's New York City-based InvestmentNews on Monday as a senior columnist and mutual funds reporter. Waggoner, based in Vienna, Virginia (outside Washington, D.C.), spent more than 25 years as a reporter and columnist with USA Today, writing about mutual funds, personal finance, stocks, bonds, and the economy.

MFWire could not immediately reach InvestmentNews editor Fred Gabriel for comment on the move.

Waggoner confirms that he took a buyout from USA Today in May 2015. Since then, he tells MFWire, he has done "quite a bit of freelancing." Yet InvestmentNews struck a chord for Waggoner.

"I like kind of having a bully pulpit," Waggoner says. "It's a slightly different audience but I don't think that it's that different."

Waggoner says he'll still be covering "trends in the fund industry and trends in the market in general." Yet there will be some changes.

"I'll be traveling more, which is nice," Waggoner says. "I'll be able to go out and visit sources."

"I understand there's a great big mutual fund industry in Boston. It'll be nice to check out if those rumors are true," Waggoner quips.

An alumnus of Northeastern University, Waggoner previously was a senior editor at The Independent Investor
