Meet the Host: Jean Chatzky

Jean Chatzky came to personal finance not as an economist or a financial planner but as a journalist who dug into the topic of money to get her own money in order as well as to earn a paycheck. She has the innate ability to take the complicated world of money and explain it in ways we can all understand. And this has never been more important than now because we all have more responsibility for our financial lives than any generation that came before us. Aside from hosting Everyday Wealth™, Jean is the CEO of and host of the podcast HerMoney with Jean Chatzky. The financial editor of NBC's TODAY show for 25 years and the financial ambassador for AARP, she appears frequently on CNN and MSNBC and was a recurring guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
