Jeremy Hobson is the former host of Marketplace Morning Report.
Hobson started at Marketplace in 2007 as a reporter based in Washington, D.C. He later covered Wall Street and its impact on ordinary Americans for Marketplace, based in the New York City bureau. He started reporting from New York one week before Lehman Brothers collapsed in 2008. Hobson hosted Marketplace Morning Report from 2011 through 2013.
Before joining Marketplace, Hobson frequently found himself in the right place at the right time when it came to big stories: He was calling Florida precincts for NPR’s 2000 election coverage, he was working for Boston’s WBUR during the Boston Catholic Church Sex Abuse scandal, and he was an intern for NPR’s Guy Raz in Turkey at the start of the Iraq War. In addition to those roles, Hobson has worked as producer for NPR’s All Things Considered, Day to Day and Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! He has also worked as a host and reporter for public radio stations WILL Urbana, WCAI Cape Cod and WRNI Providence.
Hobson’s radio career began in earnest at the age of nine when he started contributing to a program called Treehouse Radio. Hobson is a graduate of Boston University and the University of Illinois Laboratory High School. He lives in New York and enjoys hiking, traveling and extremely spicy foods.
