Bio

Trish Regan was born in Hampton, New Hampshire, where she attended high school and graduated with honors from the Phillips Exeter Academy. During her time in high school, Regan was awarded first place in the Harvard Musical Association’s competition. She was Miss New Hampshire and represented her home state in the Miss America 1994 pageant. Regan went on to study voice in Graz, Austria, and at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston before enrolling at Columbia University. She graduated cum laude from Columbia with a B.A. in U.S. history in 2000.

Regan joined FOX Business Network (FBN) as an anchor and markets reporter in April 2015. Regan is the anchor of The Intelligence Report with Trish Regan at 2PM/ET.

In November 2015, Regan, alongside FBN’s Sandra Smith, moderated the network’s inaugural Republican presidential primary debate, making history as the first dual-female team to host a debate. The event, which featured candidates earning less than 2.5 percent, delivered 4.7 million total viewers and 866,000 in the key 25-54 demo, making it one of FBN’s highest rated programs ever.

Before starting at FBN, Regan was at Bloomberg where she served as the anchor of the daily market-close program, Street Smart with Trish Regan. While there, she also anchored a series of primetime specials, including the network’s 2012 Presidential campaign coverage. She joined the channel in 2011 and throughout her tenure interviewed some of the most prominent names in business, including: Virgin Group CEO Sir Richard Branson, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, NSA Director Admiral Michael Rogers, activist investor Carl Icahn, former Secretaries of State Madeline Albright and Condoleezza Rice, former President of the United States Bill Clinton, and CBS Corporation President and CEO Leslie Moonves.

Prior to Bloomberg, Regan served as a markets and documentary anchor for CNBC where her “Marijuana, Inc.” special is still among the network’s highest rated documentaries. She was also a regular contributor to NBC’s Nightly News and the Today Show. She joined CNBC from CBS News in 2007, where her work as a financial correspondent for CBS Evening News earned her an Emmy nomination for investigative journalism. From 2001-2005, Regan was based in San Francisco where she served as a correspondent for CBS MarketWatch and anchored for the CBS affiliate, KPIX-TV.

Regan spent time working in the emerging debt markets group at Goldman Sachs and at hedge fund DE Shaw while pursuing a degree in American History at Columbia University. She is a member of The Council on Foreign Relations and the author of “Joint Ventures: Inside America’s Almost Legal Marijuana Industry,” which was published in 2011.

Regan married investment banker James A. Ben in 2001. They have three children.

Speech Topics

The American economy is in the middle of a structural shift. Just as when the U.S. struggled with the painful transition from an agrarian-led economy to a manufacturing-led economy, Regan argues that we are currently feeling the effects of a move from a manufacturing economy into a service economy.


So, how does a society transition its workers for the future economy? And how do companies best position themselves for growth? Regan examines the industries of the future, providing insight into the kinds of technology and services businesses that will generate future growth while also addressing the policies needed to enable the U.S. economy to compete.


Financial news anchor and columnist Trish Regan helps you interpret the multitude of headlines coming out of Washington to enable you to better understand the economic opportunities and challenges we currently face. Regan examines the actual policy changes that will impact our economy, our markets, and our future. From tax reform to infrastructure spending, global trade agreements, regulation changes, higher interest rates, growing debt and global instability, Regan provides in-depth, thoughtful analysis on the most up-to-date news stories that will affect the nation and your future.


U.S. wages are at their lowest level in more than 20 years and workers are growing tired of a stagnant economy. Globalization, coupled with structural economic changes, have created an environment that often rewards capital at a greater rate than it does labor – and workers around the world are, increasingly, saying “enough!” From Brexit to the U.S. election, middle class workers are making their voices heard. Trish Regan examines the policies that need to be enacted now to help change the fate of U.S. workers and strengthen our middle class, while simultaneously encouraging companies to invest in the world’s greatest economy.


The U.S. economy is facing a predicament the Federal Reserve didn’t anticipate — a stronger than expected U.S. dollar. While a strong dollar is great in theory because it reduces the cost of foreign goods for American consumers (including commodities like oil), Regan argues that the stronger currency will have negative consequences for corporate earnings and the markets.


There’s a QE bonanza going on across the globe with central banks in China, Japan, India, Russia and Turkey all aggressively trying to grow their economies and devalue their currencies. With the U.S. now one of the rare countries that’s not cutting, nor enacting additional QE, investors are piling into the U.S. dollar.


Regan explains the challenged relationship the Fed now has with our currency, as the dollar may leave the Fed unable to move off its zero-interest rate policy as early as many believe is necessary.
