Bianna Golodryga on Her Engagement
ABC News correspondent to wed budget director Peter Orszag.
How did Orszag win her heart? He's "tall, dark and he could say Golodryga and spell it after our first date," she said. "That is a winner in my book."
The couple, who met in May at the White House Correspondent's Dinner, became engaged Monday at Sarabeth's restaurant in New York City.
Golodryga, 31, joined ABC News' "Good Morning America" in 2007. Since then she has worked the economy and business beat for all ABC News platforms and has reported extensively on the housing and credit crisis.
Golodryga began her career in television news in 2001 as a producer for the cable news channel CNBC. In 2004, Golodryga became a segment producer for CNBC's "The Wall Street Journal Report With Maria Bartiromo." In addition to her production duties at CNBC, she also began contributing as an on-air correspondent for the financial channel in 2006.
Golodryga graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, where she received a bachelor's degree in Russian/East European and Eurasian studies with a minor in economics.
Before becoming the budget director for the Obama administration, Orszag served as the seventh director of the Congressional Budget Office, a job he began in January 2007. During his term, he was credited for his work on health care and climate issues. Orszag is a veteran of the Clinton White House, where he served as an economic adviser.
Orszag, 41, graduated from Princeton University and received a doctorate in economics from the London School of Economics. He is the father of two children from his previous marriage.
