Andreea Gheorghe

Andreea Gheorghe was born in 1982 in Panciu, Romania. She is an award-winning journalist and editor, specializing in economics and currently works for Antena 3, a leading Romanian news channels.


Until 2008 she worked as reporter and moderator at the Money Channel, following previous engagement in the national weekly, Capitol.

In 2006, she won the Romanian press club’s economic journalism award.

Andreea applied to the Balkan Fellowship programme to improve her understanding of the social implications of economic transitions, with a focus on mining industry in Romania and Bulgaria, a study which is not only of special interest to her as a journalist but one, she believes, that has great general relevance.

Her research was supervised by Marian Chiriac, an editor of BIRN’s Balkan Insight publication.
