Amanda Lang

Senior Business Correspondent | CBC News

Gemini-award winning business journalist Amanda Lang is CBC’s senior business correspondent, reporting for its flagship nightly news program, The National. She is also co-host of The Lang & O’Leary Exchange, a daily business program airing on CBC News Network. She is also senior business correspondent for CBC’s The National, and occasionally anchors the broadcast.

Lang studied Architecture at the University of Manitoba, before becoming a journalist. Her first job in journalism was for the Globe and Mail, and subsequently Lang joined the Financial Post newspaper, where she became the paper’s New York correspondent. In New York she made the leap to television, when she became part of the team that launched BNN in 1999 and before long moved to CNN as reporter and anchor. She returned to Canada in 2002 to re-join BNN and CTV.

Lang regularly covers topics as diverse as Israeli politics and music copyright infringement, and is equally at home talking to ambassadors as she is talking to movie actors. She has acquired her Canadian Securities Course certificate, and speaks often about business and economic trends. In addition to her work as a speaker, Lang is also a great MC and loves doing it. Her engaging and witty style can be attributed to many years stick-handling the vagaries of live television!
