CORRESPONDENT – 60 MINUTES+
Laurie Segall was named a correspondent for 60 Minutes+ in 2021, when the new version of the Sunday classic debuted on Paramount+.
In 2020, Segall was a correspondent for “60 in 6,” which launched on the mobile platform Quibi. For that program, the Gracie and EPPY-award winning tech industry journalist broadened her scope with a story on the right-wing Boogaloo Bois and a fascinating look inside a QAnon convention.
Segall first gained notoriety by identifying and interviewing founders of disruptive tech companies and examining their impact on society. Segall’s insightful reporting interprets a future where technology is redefining what it means to be human.
She founded Dot Dot Dot, a news and entertainment company that explores the intersection of tech and humanity. She is the host of the podcast, “First Contact,” produced by Dot Dot Dot, where she is CEO and executive producer.
Segall spent a decade before Dot Dot Dot covering technology at CNN, where she was senior technology correspondent and the editor-at-large for CNN Tech. She reported for all CNN platforms and was recognized early when Forbes named her to the magazine’s “30 Under 30” list at age 26. In 2017, Segall produced and reported the first series made for CNN Digital’s online streaming platform CNNgo. Her “Mostly Human with Laurie Segall” series was dubbed, “The real-life ‘Black Mirror.’” Two years before, she won a Gracie for “Revenge Porn: The Cyberwar on Women,” which aired across CNN platforms. Her work championing women has also won several EPPY Awards. Segall has covered the rise of the world’s largest tech companies and her reporting has earned her the respect of Silicon Valley’s leading entrepreneurs. She has interviewed leaders like Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook, Sheryl Sandberg, Jack Dorsey, and Bill Gates.
Segall joined the cable network out of college and soon began writing for CNN Money and gained experience field producing breaking news for Hurricanes Sandy and Irene. She has consistently used technology to investigate national news stories. During the Boston Marathon bombing, she reconstructed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s deleted Instagram account. And later, tracked down an exclusive interview with Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro's daughter.
