Laurie Segall Bio/Age/CNN Career
Laurie Segall was born on August 19, 1986, in Michigan, United States. She attended the University of Michigan from 2004 to 2008 and graduated with a degree in political science.
Immediately after college, Laurie Segall began working at CNN as a news assistant in numerous segments including breaking news, writing, filing, tracking, and digging. A year and a month later, Segall rose to become a social media tech journalist.
In a role that lasted 1 year and 5 months, she wrote and produced business segments for CNN and reported on technology and social media for CNN Money. During this time Segall met with troubled technology companies and shared some lesser-known facts about them.
Segall has received a number of awards for her impeccable reporting on the impact of technology on the daily lives of the average citizen.
She has launched an investigative report on drug use and sexual harassment in Silicon Valley, exposing how victims are recruited through social media. She has also given her audience a rare insight into the hacker community.
In addition to reporting on technology, Segall has used her technological experience to cover other areas, such as during the post-Bombings in Boston, when she was able to reconstruct the deleted Instagram account of suspect Dzhochar Zarnaev.
Laurie also used the technology to track down and exclusively interview Angie Gregg, the daughter of Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro.
See below her June 2017 interview with Facebook Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
When Laurie isn’t meeting with a victim of sexual harassment or interviewing a boss of a technology giant, she speaks at industry conferences such as Internet Week New York and SXSW.
