A graduate of Harvard University, Setrakian is a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations. She was named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business and one of Marie Claire Magazine’s Women on Top.

Her work at News Deeply was awarded the National Press Foundation’s Excellence in Online Journalism Award for 2013.

Billed by ABC News as "weekly analysis and top stories in the world's hottest region, from ABC’s Lara Setrakian," the blog covers background information on the Middle East region. Lara's use of multiple platforms: television, web, Twitter, and blogs was highlighted by Rachel Boehm.


In 2017 Setrakian delivered a TED talk on three ways to fix the news industry. She gave an earlier talk for TEDxYerevan discussing her career as a Middle East foreign correspondent and five key lessons she learned along the way. She has been a frequent speaker on the future of news as a public service, through delivery models that are designed for the digital age.


In 2012, Setrakian founded Syria Deeply, a platform covering the war in Syria, addressing a gap in in-depth media coverage of conflict zones and serving an underserved niche audience that was “thirsty to understand more.” Receiving positive responses and great interest in single-issue sites, Setrakian launched a second platform, Ebola Deeply (archived), addressing the West African Ebola virus epidemic. Since then more platforms covering geopolitical, health and environmental issues have been added to the News Deeply network, which has been called a “new model of impact journalism”. As a fellow of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in 2014, Setrakian authored a landmark paper on vertical, or single-subject news sites a rising trend in digital publishing. In her TED talk in January 2017, Setrakian made the case that some of the ideas she founded News Deeply on were relevant for the crisis-ridden news industry, describing journalism as “adult education” and advocating for embracing complexity “in order to make sense of a complex world.” In an opinion piece for the Washington Post Setrakian spoke out on allegations of sexual harassment against political journalist Mark Halperin. She wrote about the systematic implications of such behavior and repercussions for the news industry, calling Halperin part of a bigger problem that needs to be fixed. She was one of several women who had been harassed by him working at ABC News and were mentioned in a report by CNN. In a subsequent interview with Judy Woodruff for PBS News Hour she said, “I think there’s a generational shift. I think there’s a mindset shift” around workplace norms and sexual assault. In September 2018, News Deeply laid off staff members and cut some of its publications including Oceans Deeply, Malnutrition Deeply, and Peacebuilding Deeply. In an email comment to Fast Company, Lara confirmed the changes and added that the company’s model “allows us to pop up and fold down thematic platforms. It’s always sad for us to see any of them go dark. Letting go of colleagues when that happens is the hardest part of my job as a CEO.” In December 2018 she joined with a group of women journalists to create Press Forward, an initiative to change the culture of newsrooms at the local and national level, so that they are safe and fair for all reporters.


Beginning as a contributor to Bloomberg Television while working with ABC News, Lara officially joined Bloomberg in early 2011. She headlined Middle East coverage for Bloomberg during the Arab Spring, and covered its aftermath including the latest ramifications in Libya, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Bahrain.

While on that assignment, Setrakian was the first American to interview the new president of war-torn Somalia, Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed.


In 2007, she received a fellowship from the Peter Jennings Project for Journalists and the Constitution part of the National Constitution Center. Lara was named one of the top 9 most influential Young Professionals in Foreign Policy under 33 by The Diplomatic Courier and made Foreign Policy's FP Twitterati 100 'A Who's who of the foreign-policy Twitterverse in 2011'. She is a member of the International Institute for Strategic Studies and the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.


Before moving to the Middle East, Setrakian was a reporter for ABC News in New York where her reporting appeared on ABC News shows “Good Morning America,” “World News”,"This Week" and “Nightline.” She covered high-profile trials and cases in the U.S., such as Duke Lacrosse Sex Scandal as well as exclusively interviewing the five Chinese men released from Guantanamo Bay detention camp in 2006.
