If you need your NPR in the morning like you need coffee, you know the voice of Lisa Napoli. As one of the hosts of the Marketplace Morning Report, she delivers business news in a way that's bearable at 6:50am.

Lisa's a journalist with somewhat terrifying multimedia skills: She's produced documentaries, reported for NPR, worked in television and written for the New York Times. Oh, yeah, she's done the internet thing, too.

A New York native who spent a chunk of time living in the south before returning to Manhattan, Lisa came to LA for the Marketplace gig more than a year ago. In the picture, she's interviewing an enormous artichoke. Apparently, it was somewhat prickly (har har).
