Betsy Streisand

Enterprise Editor


Betsy Streisand is the former enterprise editor, Washington bureau chief and deputy managing editor of Marketplace. She oversaw special feature coverage. On good days (with a nod to a former editor), she helped make what's important interesting.

What do you think is the hardest part of your job that no one knows?

Convincing people that it really is all about the money.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Dancer, then baker.

What’s something that you thought you knew but later found out you were wrong about?

So many things.

What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?

Actually just having a real office inside a real office building was (is) one of my favorite things.

This is NOT a paywall. 

Marketplace is community-funded public service journalism. Give in any amount that works for you – what matters is that you give today.
