Bruce Becker: The FishbowlDC Interview

Becker Bruce.JPGSay hello to Fox Business Networks’ D.C. Bureau Chief Bruce Becker.

What word do you routinely misspell? “Misspell.” My nightmare is sending out a memo reminding people not to misspell, and I misspell “misspell.” I had to look it up three times just to give you this answer.

What is the name of your cell phone ring? “Hey there Delilah” by Plain White T’s. No, wait. That’s my daughter’s. I actually have whatever boring ring tone that the phone came with. No one calls it, anyway, so it doesn’t matter.

What time did you get up this morning? 4:30am. I have a lot of nervous energy these days.

When did you last cry and why? NOYB.

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? Too many. (Some day I’d like to see someone answer “Just the right amount” to that question.)

What’s your favorite letter? All of the Greek ones, of course. (That’s economics humor, which might explain why nobody calls me).

What single person played the biggest role / had the biggest influence on your journalism career? I’d have to say Roger Ailes had the biggest influence. As the force behind Fox News, he gave me some great opportunities that have propelled my career in the last eleven years. I’m very thankful.

Wilson’s Memo

New FOX Washington Bureau Chief Brian Wilson sent out the following email to Fox staffers Friday:

    I want to thank you all for the very warm comments I have received since the announcement yesterday. It was an extremely exciting day. For the immediate future, I have asked everyone in the chain of command to keep plugging along. I have now relocated into Kim’s old office — and can be reached at [REDACTED]. I know that all of you have a million questions about how this transfer is going to take place and what it means to you. I’m not sure I will have all of the answers for a few days, but that should not prevent us from getting together for a chat. If your news coverage duties will allow, please join us in the Louisiana Purchase newsroom Monday, January 29th at 1 p.m. I will be talking about the vision I have for this bureau. Newly minted Fox Business VP Bruce Becker will also be there to talk about his exciting new adventure. Betsy is promising that there will be extra special snacks. In the meantime, please know that I am extremely proud to be given this opportunity to lead the best newsroom in Washington. See you Monday afternoon, if not before. Brian
