Rosevear Leaves Motley Fool for CNBC Gig

My fave no-nonsense car guy leaves his senior automotive position for Motley Fool and is off to CNBC. John has a wicked sense of humor and irony. He is my fave No B.S. EV car writer. I wish him the best. If you’re on Twitter, I’d recommend you follow John for updates on the EV space and for his savage wit.…

In another new hire for the newsroom, John Rosevear is joining to cover the burgeoning electric vehicle beat. John will cover old and new automakers as they grapple with a zero-emissions future. He will report to Mike Calia as part of the transportation team. John comes to us from The Motley Fool, where he spent nearly 15 years, ending his tenure as a senior automotive reporter. While there, he focused on the rise of electric and self-driving vehicles for an audience of (mostly) retail investors.

Not surprisingly for an automotive reporter, John was born in Michigan. But — plot twist! — he grew up in the seaside town of Barrington, Rhode Island. He graduated from Cornell University with a degree in government. John currently resides in Berlin, Massachusetts (not too far from Boston). He enjoys hiking, playing guitar, tinkering with old cars and FaceTiming with his three college-age kids. He looks forward to moving to New York in the not-too-distant future.
