margaret_wardMargaret E. Ward is a award-winning journalist, broadcaster and managing director of Clear Ink. She spent most of her print journalism career as a business columnist for The Irish Times and Editor of The Sunday Times’ Money section. Since 2010, she has focused on broadcasting and is a regular contributor to many RTE programmes including Tubridy on 2FM, The History Show, Saturday View, The Late Debate and TV3’s Tonight with Vincent Browne. She was also presenter of Newstalk’s Breakfast Business.

Margaret considers herself a practical kind of girl. In response to the lack of female voices on the airwaves, Margaret founded a seminar and networking group called “Women on Air” to give women the skills and confidence to express their expert opinions on radio and TV. She also developed a resource that makes it easy for producers and researchers to find women who will speak on different topics. “The List” of female contributors has more than 800 entries.

Margaret is a native New Yorker, with Irish parents, and she moved to Dublin in 1995. She is married with two small children.
