Doug Whiteman

Former Editor-in-Chief

Doug has been honing his expertise in personal finance for the better part of a quarter century, including over 10 years spent as a Washington, D.C.-based consumer news reporter and editor for The Associated Press and its radio network. Prior to joining Wise Publishing, he was an insurance and mortgage editor for a top competitor of MoneyWise, and was quoted by The Wall Street Journal multiple times and made appearances on Fox Business, CBS Radio and other media.

He’s the winner of two Associated Press awards, a boxing enthusiast, and the collector of hundreds of old-school 3D View-Master reels.

The best part about covering personal finance is that you have an opportunity to provide people with information that can make a real difference in their lives.
