Sujata Srinivasan

Senior Health Reporter

Sujata Srinivasan is Connecticut Public Radio’s senior health reporter. Prior to that, she was a senior producer for Where We Live, a newsroom editor, and from 2010-2014, a business reporter for the station.

She comes to radio from print, and more than two decades before that, television. Her reporting ranges from covering the insider trading trial of Goldman Sachs board member Rajat Gupta from a New York courthouse for the Indian edition of Forbes, where she was an independent U.S. correspondent; and data-driven coverage of the financial relationship between physicians and pharma companies for the nonprofit Connecticut Health Investigative Team, founded by two Pulitzer women journalists; to telemedicine’s early days of bringing health care to rural India when she was a correspondent at TV 18-CNBC in Chennai.

Sujata was promoted to interim bureau chief and tasked with assuming leadership as bureau chief. But then, she met a man from Connecticut, fell in love, and immigrated to the U.S. She is the mother of a bright spark, and also mothers her rescue dog Panju Muttai (Cotton Candy), made of tail power and love.

She’s worked as editor of Connecticut Business Magazine, assigning and editing award-winning work; the Connecticut correspondent for Crain’s Business; longtime independent contributor to the Hartford Courant and Hartford Business Journal; business correspondent for the North American edition of the Indian Express; contributing editor to the Connecticut Economic Resource Center; senior financial editor supporting the Chicago investment firm Thomas White International, where she trained offshore analysts in financial report writing; and instructor of economics at Saint Joseph University.

Sujata is passionate about health equity, corporate accountability, the economics and ethics of health care, policy impact, climate change and health, science and innovation, and the human condition.

She has a Master’s in Economics from Trinity College, Hartford; a Post Graduate Diploma (Hons) from the Times School of Journalism, New Delhi; a Bachelor’s in Business from the University of Madras, Chennai; and a diploma in Storytelling from Kathalaya Trust, Bangalore, in collaboration with the Scottish Storytelling Institute.

Sujata was a museum teacher at the Mark Twain House, and is the author of an audio biography of Twain, produced by Columbia River Entertainment (2009), and the author of Forged by Flame: A Biography of Dr. Rachel Chacko, Zero Degree Publishing (Forthcoming, 2023).
