Deborah Clark is the vice president and executive producer of the Marketplace portfolio of programs, including Marketplace, Marketplace Morning Report, Marketplace Weekend, and Marketplace Tech. With Marketplace “in her DNA” thanks to a previous stint, Clark rejoined the team in 2009 as a senior producer and eventually was promoted to executive producer of the portfolio in 2011.

In her time away from Marketplace, she pursued a career as an independent producer of radio documentaries and projects across the public radio system. Among her favorites were a two-week long series of broadcasts for Marketplace from China; a reporting trip to Japan for the Savvy Traveler; the pilot for Weekend America with hosts Merrill Markoe and David Brown and an hour-long documentary with Robert Reich. She also worked as the senior producer of a statewide television show called “California Connected” and for NPR as executive producer of “Day to Day.”

Clark has received many awards including an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton recognizing excellence in broadcast and digital journalism (1998) and a George Foster Peabody award, the oldest and most prestigious media award (2000). Clark attended the University of California, Berkeley where she received her bachelor’s degree in political science. She returned to her alma mater years later and obtained her master’s degree in journalism. A native of Great Baddow,England, Clark currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and two young kids. They keep her from spending all her spare time at the office.
