About the Speaker

John Stossel

John Stossel is the host and creator of Stossel TV. The former host of Stossel on Reason, Fox Business’ Stossel, and ABC’s 20/20, he has won 19 Emmys and authored several best-sellers.

Stossel graduated from Princeton University in 1969 with a B.A. in psychology. He soon began a career in television journalism, working initially as a researcher for KGW in Portland, Oregon, and then as a consumer reporter for WCBS in New York City. He worked as a consumer editor for ABC’s Good Morning America before becoming a correspondent for 20/20 in 1981. In time, Stossel’s role on the program expanded, and his occasional segment “Give Me a Break,” in which he skeptically examined topics ranging from education to government regulation, eventually became a regular feature of the show. In 1994 “Give Me a Break” was transformed into a series of one-hour prime-time specials that enjoyed consistently strong ratings. In 2003 ABC named Stossel a coanchor of 20/20.

In 2009 Stossel joined the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network as a special series host, author of the blog John Stossel’s Take, and anchor of the weekly news program Stossel (2009–16), focusing on libertarian issues.
