Marketplace : About

Airs weekdays at 6:30pm on 93.9 FM and AM 820

What's happening on Wall Street? When did old-fashioned "firing" become "downsizing"? And what motivates a 16-year-old grocery clerk in Illinois to invest in a stock portfolio? Hear these and other financial items. Marketplace is not only about money and business, but about people, local economies and the world — and what it all means to us. The only national daily business news program originating from the West Coast, Marketplace has four domestic bureaus—in New York, Miami, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, plus international bureaus in London and Beijing.
