Lisa Simeone

Radio Host of the Chicago Symphony

Throughout her radio career, Lisa Simeone has hosted hundreds of live and taped broadcasts, encompassing classical music, jazz, folk, opera, news, interviews, and call-in shows. She also has extensive TV experience, as a host, interviewer, and guest on news and cultural affairs programs. From 1998 to 2000, she was a regular host of NPR's Performance Today and 'Weekend Edition Sunday. She then became full-time host of NPR's Weekend All Things Considered, a job she held from 2000 to 2002. She left in March 2002 to return to freelancing. Shortly after, she began hosting NPR World of Opera. She also returned to hosting and writing for the independent (non-NPR) radio documentary series Soundprint, which she had done earlier in her career before she was hired at Weekend All Things Considered.

In 2007, Simeone began hosting the weekly Chicago Symphony Orchestra Broadcast Series, produced and syndicated by the Chicago radio service WFMT.
