Tess Vigeland, the host of the “Marketplace Money” radio show, will step down later this year, reports Brent Lang of The Wrap.
“Vigeland became host of Marketplace Money in 2006 and from her perch reported over the years on the financial crisis, President Obama’s stimulus program and the effects of the biggest economic downturn since the Depression on listeners’ pocketbooks and wallets.
“”I arrived two weeks after 9/11, and have since shared a journey with our audience through war, economic boom and bust, corporate scandals, stock market mayhem, and the Great Recession,’ Vigeland said in a statement. ‘Even through all that, we still did manage to have fun.
