Laurie Segall (born August 18, 1985) is an American journalist. Noted for interviewing leaders in technology, including Mark Zuckerberg [1][2] and Tim Cook,[3] among others, she was the senior technology correspondent and an editor-at-large for CNN for more than a decade.[4] Segall also developed and hosted Mostly Human, an investigative docu-series that explored the impact of technology on sex, love, and death.[5]


Segall was born to a Jewish family in the South although she attended a Christian school.[6] 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.[6]

At CNN, Segall produced several digital short-form series, including "Sex, Drugs & Silicon Valley," "Revenge Porn," and "Secret Lives of Superhero Hackers."[7] 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.[8] 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.[9]

At 26, Segall appeared on Forbes "30 Under 30" list in the media category.[10]Mashable included her on their list of seven top journalists to subscribe to on Facebook.[11]

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."[12]
