Today on Business Rockstars, Ken Rutkowski talks with Betty Liu, the anchor of Bloomberg Television’s “In the Loop with Betty Liu” (8-10am ET), a daily business morning news program that covers the opening of U.S. markets and financial, economic and political news from around the world. She also hosts the weekday half-hour program “In the Loop at the Half” at noon on Bloomberg Radio.
Betty Liu has interviewed numerous prominent newsmakers for Bloomberg including Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, media pioneer Ted Turner and former General Electric Chairman and CEO Jack Welch. She also hosts special programming for Bloomberg Television, including “Singapore Sessions” and the series “Titans at the Table.”
Liu brings an award-winning wealth of experience in print, radio and television to her role. Before joining Bloomberg Television in 2007, she was an anchor and correspondent for CNBC Asia in Hong Kong and before that, Liu served as the Atlanta bureau chief for the Financial Times where her coverage of the largest Fortune 500 companies based in the South earned her a spot on TJFR’s “Top 30 business journalists under 30 list” three years in a row.
Earlier in her career, Liu served as the Taiwan bureau chief for Dow Jones Newswires – the youngest ever in Asia – and a Hong Kong-based regional correspondent for the newswire. In 1997, she received a Dow Jones Newswires Award for her coverage of the Asian financial crisis.
