Lori Bongiorno is the General Manager of Yahoo Lifestyle, Entertainment, and MAKERS where she leads a nearly 100-person team. A seasoned media executive with experience in both print and digital, Lori graduated from Lehigh University with a degree in political science before spending six years as a reporter at BusinessWeek Magazine. In 2008, she published a book on sustainable living titled Green, Greener, Greenest, which was later nominated for a Books for a Better Life award.
Now helming Verizon Media Group’s premier entertainment brands, she works with editors, product managers, and engineers to execute high-level, innovative projects that are helping to reshape the digital landscape. Together, these brands garner more than 60 million visitors a month, putting them among the top-two competitors on comScore. When not working, Lori can be found organizing pizza tours through NYC with her son, or binge-watching streaming TV (while knitting) with her daughter. She currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband — who is patiently teaching her how to fly fish.
