AMERICAN PUBLIC MEDIA has hired personal finance expert and NEW YORK TIMES writer CARMEN WONG ULRICH as the new host of the weekend show MARKETPLACE MONEY, starting with shows to air the weekend of NOVEMBER 2nd.
MARKETPLACE VP/Exec. Producer DEBORAH CLARK said, "CARMEN brings a broad and deep knowledge of personal finance to the MARKETPLACE portfolio. She's really the whole package -- personal finance smarts and expertise and an engaging broadcast personality -- and will fit seamlessly into the MARKETPLACE sensibility of being able to translate complex issues into relatable stories. Listeners will benefit greatly from her background. She can go beyond explaining how to make smart healthcare or investment choices to a deeper understanding of the direct impact of public policy and the market's ebbs and flows."
"I'm thrilled to sit back in the host chair for MARKETPLACE MONEY," said ULRICH, who has also hosted her own show on CNBC and writes a monthly column for GOOD HOUSEKEEPING. "Connecting with listeners, readers and viewers is paramount in keeping personal finance personal and MARKETPLACE has an engaged, responsive audience like no other. I can't wait to meet them."
