The FBN anchor spent 19 years trading natural gas, crude oil, gold and other commodities on the New York Mercantile Exchange — so he knows how to talk business.
Bolling’s FBN colleague and Mendham, N.J. resident Neil Cavuto told Park Place Magazine:
“He’s a Jersey boy like me; he just calls ‘em as he sees ‘em. Viewers sense that clear, blunt approach. That’s why so many are drawn to Eric and his show.”
“When you see your name in the show’s title logo,” Bolling said proudly to the magazine, “it makes all the long hours worth it.”
