Betty Liu

Betty Liu is an anchor for Bloomberg Television in New York. Every day on her morning program (8-10 am EST, Mon-Fri), she counts viewers down to the opening bell. Since joining Bloomberg, Betty has secured some of the biggest interviews for the network including lengthy sit-downs with CEOs and newsmakers including Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Jack Welch, Fred Smith and many others.

Betty was formerly an anchor and correspondent for CNBC Asia, based in Hong Kong. She covered the daily market action in the Greater China region for all of CNBC's morning shows including the signature program, Squawk Box. She anchored the coverage of the China market meltdown in February 2007 and also anchored CNBC's newest show, Capital Connection, which launched in March 2007.

Betty Liu brings an award-winning wealth of experience in print, radio and television. Before entering television, Betty was the Atlanta bureau chief for The Financial Times where she made a name for herself by breaking news and profiling top corporate and political leaders such as Coca-Cola ex-chief executive Douglas Daft, former Home Depot CEO Bob Nardelli and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. Her coverage of the biggest Fortune 500 companies based in the South (Coca-Cola, Home Depot, UPS, FedEx) earned her a spot on TJFR's "Top 30 business journalists under 30 list" three years in a row. The FT also nominated her for a Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for her series of articles on immigrant labor in the South.

Betty is also a book author and has written about personal finance. She published the financial and lifestyle guide, "Age Smart: Discovering the Fountain of Youth at Midlife and Beyond" (Prentice Hall, May 2006), which was turned into a month-long weekly series on CNBC Asia called "The Good Life". Her book led her to writing a bi-weekly personal finance column in The South China Morning Post.

Prior to joining The FT and CNBC Asia, Betty was the Taiwan bureau chief for Dow Jones Newswires - the youngest ever in Asia - and a Hong Kong-based regional correspondent for the newswire. In 1997, she received a Dow Jones Newswires Award for her coverage of the Asian financial crisis.

She has written for The Wall Street Journal, Far Eastern Economic Review, and Philadelphia Magazine.

Betty was born in Hong Kong and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with an English degree. She is a mother of twin boys.
