After three months as an interim host, Jeremy Hobson has proven himself worthy of a full-time role with Marketplace Morning Report. Hobson will now host American Public Media’s morning business newscast alongside Steve Chiotakis and be heard by over five million listeners on 400 public radio stations each week. Hobson is excited to shed the interim tag and continue to inform audiences on global business affairs.
I’m thrilled at the opportunity to host the Marketplace Morning Report. The show’s mission — breaking down the complex business stories of the day so we can actually understand them — is more important now than it has ever been. I’ve been in public radio since I was nine years old, and Marketplace is everything I’ve always loved about this unique medium. It’s timely, insightful, educational, and most importantly, fun to listen to. It’s an honor to help make it what it is each morning.
Hobson has been with American Public Media since 2007 and reported for Marketplace Morning Report from both the New York and D.C. bureaus. Prior to his time at American Public Media, Hobson has done reporting and producing at NPR and worked for Boston’s WBUR.
