Marketplace Morning Report

Annie Baxter

Former Senior Reporter

SHORT BIO

Annie Baxter is a former senior reporter for Marketplace. She covered a range of topics, with a focus on agriculture and food, from her perch in St. Paul, Minn., where Marketplace’s parent company is headquartered.

Annie has been making radio since 2000, when she pursued an internship at KQED in San Francisco. At the time, she was enrolled in a doctoral program focused on literature and philosophy at UC Berkeley. But she got hooked on radio and quickly ditched her plans to become an academic.

At Marketplace, Annie works hard to make radio stories that transport listeners somewhere new and that connect them with people they might not otherwise meet. She loves taking big business stories about things like GMOs or the Big Food industry and making them feel human scale.

Before joining Marketplace, Annie spent a decade covering business in Minnesota, where she chronicled people’s experiences of the economy, including couples forced into long-distance relationships due to scarce work and parents trying to explain their unemployment to their children. Her work has garnered dozens of awards, including two regional Edward R. Murrow awards.
