Lizzie O'Leary is an American journalist. She has worked with CNN, NPR, Bloomberg TV, Yahoo News, ABC and the BBC. She holds degrees from Columbia University and Williams College.[1] She was the host of Marketplace Weekend until the end of its run in mid 2018.[2]


O'Leary graduated cum laude from Williams College.[1] She went on to graduate from the Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism in 2003.[3]


O'Leary began her career with ABC as a member of a team including Diane Sawyer, Charles Gibson, and Peter Jennings, which won a Peabody Award for reporting on the September 11th terrorist attacks.[1][4] She worked for NPR from 2003 to 2006, before moving to Bloomberg TV, where she covered politics and economic policy.[5][6] She then joined CNN in 2012 as an aviation and regulation correspondent.[7][8]

O'Leary suffered most of her life from symptoms of endometriosis, which she was eventually diagnosed with at the age of 37.[9] Related complications resulted in her decision to leave CNN in 2013.[10] She joined Marketplace later in 2013 as a fill-in host, where she helped launch Marketplace Weekend, which she hosted for four years.[1][2]
