Lifetime Learning Brenham is hosting a luncheon today featuring Loren Steffy, who is the business columnist for the Houston Chronicle. His column appears on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and he writes a daily blog (http://blog.chron.com/lorensteffy/) that discusses business topics. He has appeared on CNBC, Fox Business, the BBC and the PBS NewsHour. He is the author of Drowning in Oil: BP and the Reckless Pursuit of Profit published by McGraw-Hill in 2010 and The Man Who Thought Like a Ship, published by Texas A&M University Press in April 2012.
Before joining the Chronicle in April 2004, Steffy was Texas bureau chief and a senior writer for Bloomberg News in Dallas for 12 years. He covered a variety of business topics in Texas and across the country, including the collapse of Enron. Steffy is a three-time finalist for the Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism, the business news equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize. His reporting has won numerous state and national awards, and his coverage of the collapse of Arthur Andersen was selected for the 2003 edition of the “Best Business Stories of the Year.” Steffy has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Texas A&M University, and he is a member of the professional advisory board for Texas Tech University’s School of Media and Mass Communication.
