Noel King is a reporter for Marketplace's Wealth and Poverty desk.

Noel began her career in journalism as a freelance foreign correspondent when she moved to Khartoum after graduating from college in 2004. For three years, she covered the Darfur conflict, Sudan's North-South peace process and economic and political news. In 2007, she began working regionally in east Africa, reporting on post-genocide reconciliation in Rwanda and conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In 2008, Noel joined the team that launched The Takeaway, a nationally-syndicated live morning show produced by WNYC and PRI in collaboration with the New York Times. While working as a managing producer of The Takeaway, she traveled to South Sudan to cover the country's referendum, served as a fill-in host and was part of a team whose coverage of issues affecting communities of color in America was recognized with an RTDNA UNITY Award.

In 2011, inspired by political developments in North Africa and the Middle East, Noel moved to Cairo to cover Egypt's transition to democracy.

Noel's reporting has aired on the BBC World Service, PRI's The World and The Takeaway, NPR, CBC radio and television and CBS radio. She has written for Reuters and USA Today.

Noel is a native of Kerhonkson, New York. She graduated from Brown University with a degree in American Civilization and is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and the Association of Independents in Radio. In her spare time, she studies Arabic and hangs out in public libraries, planning her next adventure.
