Lizzie O'Leary is the new host of Marketplace Weekend.  When not hosting, O'Leary reports on issues around the intersection of politics, policy and Wall Street.

O’Leary previously worked as CNN's Aviation & Regulation correspondent, where she covered U.S. transportation and the federal regulatory agencies in Washington.

Prior to joining CNN, O’Leary was a Washington-based correspondent for Bloomberg TV, covering politics and economic policy. In that role, she led coverage of the Gulf Coast oil disaster and reported on the global credit crisis, the housing market and the government’s financial rescue package.

In 2010, she interviewed U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner during a trip to Mumbai, India. She was also first to break the news that major American automaker Chrysler would file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Previously, O’Leary was producer and reporter for NPR. She got her start in journalism at ABC News, where she was a member of the Peabody Award-winning team that covered the terror attacks of September 11th.

O’Leary earned her master’s degree with honors from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and graduated cum laude with her bachelor’s degree from Williams College.
