Among the journalists highlighted include BusinessWeek's Steve Adler, Maria Bartiromo of CNBC and BusinessWeek who checked coats as a teenager in an Italian restaurant owned by her family, Ann Davis who writes about securities and financial matters for the Wall Street Journal and whose parents worked in real estate and real estate development in Asheville, N.C. , and Jason Zweig of Money magazine whose father died of smoking-induced lung cancer and who has written about his general dislike for smoking.
