Nancy Marshall-Genzer

Senior Reporter

SHORT BIO

I report on the intersection of Washington and Wall Street, explaining how the decisions made here impact your wallet.

What was your first job?

I had a paper route. I used the money I made to buy a horse named Pokey. She totally lived up to her name, unless she was headed toward the barn around dinner time.

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

The scramble to get on air. I frequently work the early shift, filing for the “Marketplace Morning Report.” One morning last year, there was a fire drill a few minutes before I was supposed to go live. It stopped just in time!

In your next life, what would your career be?

A professor at Hogwarts.

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

My kids' artwork. They inspire me to be creative.
