    That’s a shame. Lizzie O’Really was one of the best voices on radio, and hands down the best on Marketplace. Smarter and more engaging. Looking forward to hear her wherever she lands next

    Great show. Sorry for the decision.

    So sorry to learn that Marketplace Weekend is ending, as my husband and I have enjoyed it so much. We’ll be listening to hear what takes its place, as it will have to be very good to get our attention the way Lizzie O’Leary has gotten it.

    My Saturday mornings will not be the same. Great stories and information. The show and Lizzie will be missed.

    I will miss Lizzie O’Leary on Sunday mornings. The program’s varied content was unfailingly interesting. I hope to hear her intelligent and spirited voice on another program.

    I love Marketplace Weekend and will really miss it. I also love listening to Lizzie O’Leary. She is such a gem. I always smiled when Marketplace Weekend was on. This show got me much more interested in listening to the weekday Marketplace. It is a real loss.
