David Brancaccio is the host of Marketplace Morning Report.

In the early 1990s, Brancaccio was Marketplace’s European correspondent based in London, and hosted Marketplace from 1993 to 2003.  He co-anchored the PBS television news magazine program NOW with journalist Bill Moyers from 2003 to 2005, before taking over as the program’s solo anchor in 2005.  He also hosted public television’s California Connected and hosted a series of long-form public radio documentaries on international affairs produced by the Stanley Foundation. He served as special correspondent for Marketplace’s Economy 4.0 series, which focused on in-depth reporting on ways to make the economy better serve more people.  Most recently, Brancaccio hosted Marketplace Tech, Marketplace's daily technology program. 

Brancaccio specializes in telling stories important to our economy and our democracy through the eyes of the real people who live in the cross hairs of crucial issues. His accessible yet authoritative approach to investigative reporting and in-depth interviewing earned his work the highest honors in broadcast journalism, including the Peabody, the Columbia-duPont, the Emmy, and the Walter Cronkite awards.

A new version of Brancaccio's public television special about Main Street as an engine of economic innovation called Fixing the Future will soon be a feature-length documentary.  He is author of a book about Americans applying their personal values to their money, entitled Squandering Aimlessly.  

Brancaccio has a bachelor's degree from Wesleyan University and a master's degree in journalism from Stanford University.  He has appeared on CNBC, MSNBC, and BBC television and his newspaper work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Baltimore Sun, and Britain’s The Guardian.  Brancaccio is an avid bicyclist and photographer and a very proud father of three.
