Betty W. Liu is a news anchor for Bloomberg Television, a subsidiary of Bloomberg L.P. An award-winning business journalist, Liu regularly interviews influential business, political and media leaders including Warren Buffett, Elon Musk, and Arianna Huffington.
Betty Liu is also the founder and CEO of ed-tech startup Radiate, based in NYC.
Liu graduated magna cum laude in 1995 from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in English.
After she left Dow Jones, she worked for several years as the Atlanta Bureau Chief for the Financial Times, where she broke stories on top corporate and political leaders such as Coca-Cola ex-chief executive Douglas Daft, former Home Depot CEO Bob Nardelli, and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter.
Returning to Asia as an anchor and correspondent for CNBC Asia, Liu covered the daily market action in the Greater China region for all of CNBC's morning shows, including for CNBC's Squawk Box.
She currently works for Bloomberg Television, formerly anchoring "In the Loop with Betty Liu" from its inception in 2007 until the show's cancelation in June 2015, which was replaced with "Market Movers". Liu is now an anchor for the morning program "Daybreak Asia" out of NYC and is an Editor-at-Large at Bloomberg. She also hosted "In the Loop, At the Half" on Bloomberg Radio.
In 2017 Liu founded RadiateInc.com, a subscription website offering business micro-lessons from the top CEOs.
Liu became High Point University's Media Entrepreneur in Residence in October 2017.
In 1997, she received a Dow Jones Newswires Award for her coverage of the Asian financial crisis.
Her coverage while at FT of the biggest Fortune 500 companies based in the South (Coca-Cola, Home Depot, UPS, FedEx) earned her a spot on TJFR's "Top 30 business journalists under 30 list" three years in a row (2000–2002).
On October 27, 2011, Betty Liu became the first female and Asian student to be inducted into Central High School's Alumni Hall of Fame.
In 2012, Bloomberg TV ran an advertising campaign incorrectly touting Liu as "Pulitzer Prize-nominated". When contacted by msnbc.com, Bloomberg TV acknowledged the error and said it would correct the ads. The same claim of a Pulitzer nomination was made by the publisher of her biography, Age Smart: Discovering the Fountain of Youth at Midlife and Beyond.
Liu has been married twice, first to Ohio neurologist Benjamin L. Walter (also a Central High School graduate, whom she married on September 14, 2002 and divorced in 2006) and currently to William, an Australian news executive whom she met in Hong Kong.
Liu is fluent in Mandarin, and speaks some Cantonese.
