Amanda Lang

Anchor BNN Bloomberg Toronto

Award-winning business journalist Amanda Lang has been covering business in North America for 20 years. Lang works for Bloomberg Television Canada, anchoring Bloomberg North with Amanda Lang. Previously, Lang was CBC’s senior business correspondent, reporting for its flagship nightly news program, The National, and host of The Exchange with Amanda Lang, a daily business program airing on CBC News Network. For five years before that Lang hosted The Lang and O’Leary Exchange, with Kevin O’Leary.

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, where she first was part of the team that launched BNN and before long wound up at CNN as a reporter and anchor. Her best-selling book, “The Power of Why,” (HarperCollins, October 2012) explores the connection between curiosity and success. Her second book, “The Beauty of Discomfort” will be published in April 2017.
