Marketplace Weekend, hosted by Lizzie O'Leary, brings you powerful stories from economies both large and personal, at a pace that suits your weekend life. It's an hour of insightful storytelling and a conversational look at where the economy collides with real life.
The economy touches each and every one of us… and it's essential to have a media outlet that contextualizes the economy's influence on our lives and the world around us. – Robert, Denver, CO

Host, Marketplace Weekend
Lizzie O'Leary joined Marketplace in 2013 and spearheaded the launch of Marketplace Weekend in 2014.
Lizzie kicked off her journalism career at ABC News on the Peabody Award-winning team that reported on 9/11. Prior to Marketplace, Lizzie worked for CNN as an aviation and regulation correspondent; for NPR as a producer and reporter; and for Bloomberg TV, tackling the global credit crisis, the housing market and the government's financial rescue package. She was also first to break the news that major American automaker Chrysler would file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Lizzie earned her master's degree with honors from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and graduated cum laude with her bachelor's degree from Williams College. When she isn't hosting Marketplace Weekend, she's likely tweeting her sharp and witty take on all things news, politics, business and life. A guest professor at Columbia Journalism School, she can also be heard regularly on the BBC's Business Matters and other BBC World Service programs.
