Lori Bongiorno is the General Manager of Yahoo News, Lifestyle, Entertainment and MAKERS where she leads a more than 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.
Lori 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 280 million visitors a month, putting them among the top competitors on comScore.
When not working, Lori can be found organizing pizza tours through New York City 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.
