Trish Regan is co-anchor of the "The Call" (weekdays 11a-12p ET). An Emmy Nominated correspondent, she also reports for CNBC's investigative magazine program "Business Nation" and contributes to "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams".
Since joining CNBC, Regan has traveled to the Tri-Border region of South America for an investigation into terrorist financing. Considered the most lawless region in the Western Hemisphere, the Tri-border region has become a haven for drug trafficking, arms smuggling and the distribution and manufacturing of pirated and counterfeit goods.
Regan's investigation exposed a multi-billion dollar industry of counterfeit goods--an industry that is bleeding the profits of American corporations while funding the activities of Islamic terrorists.
Regan also traveled to Colombia for an in-depth report on "Extreme Investing". She investigated the dramatic changes in the country's economy and safety record and reported from the infamous city of Medellin. Once home to drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, Medellin now has a lower murder rate than Baltimore, MD. The improved security has led to an increase in foreign investment and a surge in the country's stock market. While in Bogotá, Regan conducted an exclusive interview with President Alvaro Uribe about the controversial Colombian free trade agreement.
In addition, Regan covered the G-8 summit in Germany for CNBC and visited the Alberta tar sands in the Canadian sub-Arctic for a report on alternative sources of oil, which aired on "Business Nation".
Regan joined CNBC from CBS News where she was a correspondent reporting for the “CBS Evening News” and “The Early Show” and contributed to “48 Hours” and “Face the Nation.” In this role, Regan focused on U.S. economic policy issues affecting healthcare, the social security system and both private and government pensions. Regan also reported extensively on Latin American economic affairs including a series on terrorist fundraising in South America for which she was nominated for a National Emmy Award in Investigative Journalism. She also reported on Chile's privatized social security system, Brazil's ethanol boom and the leftist political momentum in Venezuela. Additionally, Regan covered prominent National events such as the 2006 State of the Union address and hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma.
Previously, Regan was a television correspondent for CBS MarketWatch contributing to Marketwatch.com and CBS News. In 2002, her work at CBS Marketwatch earned her The Most Outstanding Young Broadcast Journalist Award from the Northern California Society of Professional Journalists. Prior to MarketWatch, Regan reported for Bloomberg Television.
