Jeannie Lee Career
For the CBC News Network, Lee covers breaking business news. Her reports can also be heard on CBC Radio on a regular basis. She was born in Hong Kong and lived there for several years before relocating to Canada and encountering new things including mittens, the English language, and a television in the living room. She spent a lot of time in front of the television. This is how she got hooked on news. It’s also how she decided she wanted to be a journalist from the start.
She took the first step toward her goal while still a teenager. She dialed the local television and radio stations on a whim. That phone call resulted in a summer job in the traffic department, which led to an entry-level position in the television newsroom. Lee was already working full time as a news researcher/reporter for CFCF TV when she graduated from Concordia University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
Lee covered everything from municipal politics to a Liberal leadership convention, local protests against property hikes to the 71-day land claims standoff in Oka, Que., as a daily news reporter. She then became a consumer affairs specialist. She worked on that beat, investigating and resolving consumer complaints as well as exposing scams and con artists.
Her next step was to the CBC, and then to Toronto, a completely new city to explore and report on. She worked as a reporter, producer, and back-up host at CBLT at the introduction of the new “5:30 Live” news program. Later, she took on the Urban Affairs Beat, whose mission was to identify and report on unique stories about Toronto.
Lee was always interested in business news and stories of entrepreneurs who rose from humble beginnings to achieve greatness. This prompted her to join Newsworld, the CBC’s 24-hour news channel, as a business reporter. For years, Lee broadcasted her findings from a vantage point above the Toronto Stock Exchange’s trading floor. She could always tell when anything important was happening from that vantage point because traders would react loudly and strongly to breaking market news.
When the floor closed in 1997, Lee returned to the CBC, just as a new business news unit was being established. As the trading day progressed, she was designated co-host of a new program dubbed “Working Day,” a lively hour of interviews and financial news.
She also hosted “After the Bell” later in the day, which concentrated on all of the news that firms would release just after the markets closed. For the majority of its run on Newsworld, Lee was also the host of the popular show The Money Show. It was all about personal finance—how to make money, save money, invest money, and keep it safe.
She loves the adrenaline rush of live television, watching and reporting on events as dramatic as the collapse of Eaton’s, Nortel Networks, and the US housing market; the growth of the loonie, oil, and Google; and the power of technology to transform our lives.
