Amanda Lang

Category: TV

Amanda Lang is the co-anchor of SqueezePlay, a national program covering business and politics, which airs nightly on Business News Network (formerly Report on Business Television). She is also a columnist for Canada’s premier business magazine, Report on Business, where she profiles the passions of Canada’s business elite. She is uniquely positioned as a commentator on current business news and trends, and also as an observer of North America’s political scene.

Lang grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Ottawa, Ontario. She studied Architecture at the University of Manitoba, before becoming a journalist. Her first job in journalism was for The Globe and Mail, where at the age of 23 she edited a monthly newspaper called The Classroom Edition. Subsequently Lang joined the Financial Post newspaper, where she was a technology reporter before being named 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 Business News Network (in 1999) and before long wound up at CNN as a reporter and anchor. As the New York Stock Exchange correspondent for CNN, she interviewed everyone from Fortune 500 CEOs to heads of state and rock stars. She returned to Canada in 2002 to re-join Business News Network 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 an experienced MC for various corporate events. Her engaging and witty style can be attributed to many years stick-handling the vagaries of live television!

Lang was previously an anchor and reporter with CNN in New York, where she reported from the New York stock exchange for American Morning, and anchored programs on CNN's then-financial network, CNNfn.
