Multimedia Journalist Reel by Maylan Studart
Maylan Studart is a multimedia journalist in training and financial markets reporter by passion. She is currently a business and finance reporter for Yahoo Finance. Studart most recently was a freelance MMJ and part-time markets reporter at Modern Wall Street. Formerly, she was an MMJ at Fox 40 News, assignment editor at FiOS 1 News and an intern in several New York newsrooms, such as News 12 Long Island, Spectrum News NY1’s political department and United Nations Television. She graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor of fine arts in global and electronic journalism from the New York Institute of Technology and was commencement speaker for the class of 2018.
Before her journalism career, Studart was a professional jockey, winning over 100 races in her nine-year career. She was a staple of the New York Racing Association circuit for six years, which is comprised of Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course. Studart found journalism to be a lot like horseracing. Being first, living in a fast-paced world and never seeing the same day twice have made it a smooth transition into the newsroom. Because of her background, she provided live horseracing analysis for CBS on American Pharoah’s historic Triple Crown win in 2015 and Justify's win in 2018. Since 2015, Studart has provided commentary for CBS's New York sister station WLNY annually for the Triple Crown races.
Studart is a member of the New York Women in Communications, Society of Professional Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. She was a recipient of the 2015 NAHJ Ruben Salazar and 2017 NYWICI Esperanza scholarships. She studied business communication in Germany in July 2016 and was part of a 10-member student news team to report on the Excellence in Journalism conference in Anaheim, Calif. in 2017. Studart is a RIAS Berlin Commission Fellow who participated in a professional journalist exchange program in Germany in June 2018. Like a true jockey, Studart is looking for the next opportunity to join a winning newsroom and reach the highest levels in journalism.
