Susan Lisovicz has worked at major cable news networks as a premier financial reporter, covering business stories such as diamond mining in South Africa, micro-lending in Bangladesh and the handover of the Panama Canal. She is best known for her frequent reports from Wall Street, which included the dot-com boom, 9/11 and the Great Recession.

Lisovicz was pictured on the cover of Businessweek for a story titled, “What the Market is Telling Us.” She was the only reporter to get a live comment from President Bush during his unscheduled visit to the New York Stock Exchange. She has interviewed many of the business world’s top executives, including Jack Welch, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Barry Diller, Dick Parsons and Sumner Redstone. She anchored several specials at CNN, including the top 25 most influential business executives over the last 25 years.

Prior to CNN, Lisovicz spent six years as a correspondent at CNBC, where she covered some of the biggest mergers of the time, including the AOL merger with Time Warner and Westinghouse’s purchase of CBS.

Additionally, Lisovicz worked as an anchor for Headline News (HLN) and traveled all over the country as a general assignment reporter for CNN. Assignments included the Democratic and Republican conventions, live coverage of Hurricane Gilbert from Galveston, Texas, and deadly brush fires in Southern California. She has also written for WABC-TV and The Associated Press. Her first professional job, while in college, was as a news anchor at WOBM-FM in Toms River, N.J.

Lisovicz is a former president of the New York Financial Writers Association and has served on its board of governors.

Lisovicz studied at Trinity and All Saints College in Horsforth, England. She graduated from William Paterson University, where she received the President’s Medal in 1999.
