Jim Brumm started covering energy as a financial reporter at The Oil Daily in the spring of 1973 – six months before that price shock known as Arab I. His journalism career began 13 years earlier in the U.S. Navy, which trained him well at the Armed Forces Radio newsroom in New York City before sending him to Vietnam as Da Nang media representative for the Seabees. At The Oil Daily Jim covered FERC’s first step toward deregulation before returning to Reuters’ New York financial desk where he started the Energy Desk in 1983 before writing about energy equities until taking a buyout at the end of 2001. Recently he has been reporting on energy for several publications and covering the Carolinas -- North and South -- for Reuters.
