Marketplace Money host Tess Vigeland is departing the American Public Media show at the end of November. APM said Vigeland will continue as a contributor. Vigeland joined the program in 2001, as host of Marketplace Morning Report. She took over her current hosting duties in 2006.
“From my days as a cub reporter in the early '90’s," Vigeland said in a press release, "I knew I wanted to someday work at Marketplace. Any show that had that much fun on the air had to be a great place to do the news — not to mention 'The Numbers.'" She added, "I will miss our listeners more than I can express.”
Marketplace Executive Producer Deborah Clark said that "it will be great to have her continued contributions to the shows, as she moves forward into the next chapter of her career.”
