Lisa Myers Speaker Biography


Lisa Myers is an Emmy Award-winning senior investigative correspondent for NBC News, a seasoned political analyst, and one of the most respected journalists in the country. Her groundbreaking reports on the financial meltdown, war on terror, politics, assorted political and corporate scandals, and the Pentagon's sometimes broken military procurement system have triggered official investigations and won critical acclaim.

Lisa Myers can be seen on the top-rated NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and Today, as well as on MSNBC.

In 2007, Myers and her team received some of the most prestigious awards in journalism for their multi-part investigation exposing efforts by the US Army to scuttle a promising technology, called "Trophy," designed to protect soldiers from rocket-propelled grenades. The series won the George Polk Award for investigative reporting, the Joan Barone Award for Washington reporting, a Business Emmy, and a Gerald Loeb Award. In 2008, she won an Emmy Award for an investigation which raised questions about the testing of body armor for US troops.

Myers and NBC's investigative team also have been recognized repeatedly for coverage of 9/11, global terrorism, politics, and contracting problems in Iraq. They received an Edward R. Murrow award for a series on missed opportunities in both the Clinton and Bush administrations to move more aggressively against Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, which aired, for the first time, a top secret CIA surveillance tape of Bin Laden prior to 9/11. An investigation which revealed gaping holes in the crackdown on terrorist financiers received a Business Emmy in 2005.

On the domestic front, Myers's memorable reports on the bungling, incompetence, and waste at all levels of government in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina were a key component of NBC's much-heralded coverage, which was recognized with prestigious Peabody and DuPont awards. She and her team also won a Business Emmy for "Congress' Private Air Force"—exposing how corporations curry favor with politicians by providing access to corporate jets.

Lisa Myers has covered nine presidential campaigns and was a floor reporter at many Democratic and Republican conventions. In the 2000 election, she broke the story that George W. Bush had selected Dick Cheney as his running mate. Her reporting on the meteoric presidential campaign of Ross Perot also was praised by TV Guide and critics.

Before being tapped to lead NBC's investigative team, Myers was NBC's chief congressional correspondent, where she became well known for insightful analysis and hard-hitting investigative reports. She received an Emmy nomination for a series of reports in 1999, revealing that the brutal murder of an Army private at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, was an anti-gay hate crime and part of widespread harassment of gays in the military. She had a number of exclusives during the Clinton scandals—from Whitewater to the 1996 campaign fundraising scandals, Monica Lewinsky to the Clinton pardons. On Dateline NBC, she aired an exclusive interview with "Jane Doe #5," Juanita Broaddrick, an Arkansas woman who claimed Clinton sexually assaulted her—a report praised by many critics.
In 1998, Vanity Fair recognized Myers as one of the 200 Most Influential Women in America. She has also won Gracie, Clarion, Headliner, and Humanitas Awards.

Before joining NBC in 1981, Lisa Myers was White House correspondent for The Washington Star. Between 1977 and 1979, she was a Washington correspondent for The Chicago Sun-Times.

Lisa Myers was awarded a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri and attended Georgetown University’s Institute on Comparative Political and Economic Systems.
