Laurie Segall (born August 18, 1985) is an American journalist. Noted for interviewing leaders in technology, including Mark Zuckerberg  and Tim Cook, among others, she was the senior technology correspondent and an editor-at-large for CNN for more than a decade. Segall also developed and hosted Mostly Human, an investigative docu-series that explored the impact of technology on sex, love, and death.
Segall was born to a Jewish family in the South although she attended a Christian school. She attended the University of Michigan and as a student secured an internship with CNN. She graduated with a BA in political science, and was subsequently hired full-time as a news assistant position at CNN.
At CNN, Segall produced several digital short-form series, including "Sex, Drugs & Silicon Valley," "Revenge Porn," and "Secret Lives of Superhero Hackers." She later developed a series that would explore the larger implications of technology, Mostly Human, and successfully pitched the idea to CNN president Jeff Zucker. The six-episode series began airing in March 2017 on CNNgo, and in 2018 won a Webby Award in the documentary series category. In addition to covering technology, Segall has reported on national breaking news, including the Boston Marathon bombing, and, as a field producer, Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Irma. Segall reconstructed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's deleted Instagram account, and tracked down and exclusively interviewed Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro's daughter, Angie Gregg.
In February 2019 she announced that she would leave CNN after more than ten years at the network. She told Variety that she was "leaving to start my next chapter: a venture devoted to the intersection of technology and ethics."
