In more then twenty years in journalism, Lisa Napoli has managed to work for almost every major media company (and for several shows and ventures that have unceremoniously shut down).

Lisa began her career at CNN in the early eighties, covered the first Clinton campaign and the Waco standoff for Fox News long before it became a 24-7 news channel, and was one of the first reporters to cover the Web for the mainstream media when she joined the New York Times CyberTimes in 1996, where she wrote the popular Hyperwocky column. For a time, she wrote the Online Diary column for the Times' Circuits section, and she's still a frequent contributor to the paper.

She's also been the on-air correspondent at MSNBC and a columnist at MSNBC.com. Her documentaries about NASCAR racing and South of the Border, a tourist trap in South Carolina, have aired on public television.

Beyond her journalistic pursuits, Lisa is proud to have worked in craft services on the horror film Hellraiser III, as a publicity coordinator for an alternative to prison for nonviolent female offenders and their children in North Carolina, and as a producer at a division of QVC, where her team produced shows that helped sell all manner of stuff.

Lisa is a proud graduate of Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, and lives in Los Angeles, although she is a native of Brooklyn, New York.

She joined Marketplace in February of 2004.
