Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists

NPF Award Winner: Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists - Jared Hopkins

Jared Hopkins 2016

Bloomberg News

Jared S. Hopkins is a reporter in New York City for Bloomberg News, which he joined in June 2016 and covers the U.S. pharmaceutical industry. He previously spent more than six years in Chicago on the projects and investigations team for the Chicago Tribune, where he focused on public health, consumer and sports, and his reporting spurred action from public officials. He covered speedskating’s historical collapse at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, a year after his investigation revealed the sport’s national governing body was mired in turmoil for years. In 2014, Jared was a finalist for the Livingston Award For Young Journalists for an investigation that found dozens of charities started by pro athletes were run rampant with problems and shaky oversight. In 2011, he was named a Pulitzer Prize finalist for a series that revealed a pattern of harmful care at a private facility where developmentally disabled kids died from neglect or under questionable circumstances. Previously Jared also spent more than three years at the Times-News in Twin Falls, Idaho, covering local and state government. Jared is a graduate of the Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland-College Park. Jared grew up on Long Island, where his first mark on journalism was as an 11-year-old creating a monthly newsletter about his family.
