CAROL JENKINS, PRESIDENT OF THE WOMENs MEDIA CENTER, WRITER, PRODUCER, AND EMMY AWARD-WINNING TV ANCHOR. SUSAN LISOVICZ, CNN'S PRIMARY CORRESPONDENT ON THE STOCK MARKET AND CNN INTERNATIONAL, HLN AND CNN RADIO ON BUSINESS NEWS. ON THE CESLIE SHOW!
Susan Lisovicz is CNN's primary correspondent on the stock market. Lisovicz is most frequently seen from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), where she has covered the fallout from the worst financial crisis and housing recession since the Great Depression. She also reports for CNN International, HLN and CNN Radio on the latest market and business news.
Lisovicz has interviewed many of corporate America's most influential executives, including Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Jack Welch, Barry Diller and Sumner Redstone. She was live on the air when President George W. Bush made a surprise visit to the NYSE and was the only reporter to get an on-air comment. Her live coverage of the stock market’s steep drop in February resulted in her picture on BusinessWeek’s cover titled, “What the Market is Telling Us.”
Lisovicz also reports in the field on breaking general assignment stories. Those stories include the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the death of Pope John Paul II and Hurricane Katrina. Lisovicz has also anchored several specials on CNN, including the Top 25 most influential executives over the last 25 years.
Carol Jenkins is President of the Women's Media Center and a Founding Member of its Board of Directors. An Emmy award-winning former news anchor and correspondent who covered presidential politics as well as international issues, Ms. Jenkins leads the Women’s Media Center’s online publication and its advocacy initiatives.
She is a national spokeswoman for women and the media, arguing the case for inclusion of women throughout the media: in ownership positions, at the highest levels of management and creativity, as well as the telling of women's stories in television and film, radio, print, and online.
As president of the Women’s Media Center, Ms. Jenkins has testified before Congress and the FCC, and written about what she calls The Invisible Majority—the 51 percent of the population (women) who occupy only 3 percent of "clout" positions in media.
