Worcester Business Journal has hired Mica Kanner-Mascolo as its newest staff writer, with her primary coverage areas being the health care and diversity, equity, and inclusion industries.

“Mica has only been with us for a short time, and she has already delved into writing about the region’s most important news,” WBJ Editor Brad Kane said. “Her talent, intelligence, and willingness to learn, understand, and challenge traditional thinking will well serve WBJ’s readers and the Central Massachusetts business community.”

Kanner-Mascolo started her role with WBJ on March 18. Since that time, she has covered the ongoing dispute between Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester and the Massachusetts Nurses Association labor union, exciting new research at UMass Chan Medical School in Worcester, and most recently the very public resignation of the executive director Clark University’s Holocaust center.

Before coming to WBJ, Kanner-Mascolo was an editor and writer for New York City-based intersectional feminist news hub FEMINIST and a contributing writer for New York City-based beauty publication Byrdie.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in creative writing from the New School in New York City, where she served as managing editor of the school’s 12th Street Journal publication.

“I'm honored to work with such a respected and collaborative team at WBJ and excited to continue reporting on Central Massachusetts, an area filled with culture and innovative thinkers,” Kanner-Mascolo said.

In the WBJ role, Kanner-Mascolo replaces Isabel Tehan, who in January started working for Boston Business Journal, covering startups, technology, and innovation.
