Maria Bartiromo is Trying to ‘Keep it Real’

MariaBartiromo304Six months after her Fox Business debut, Maria Bartiromo is focusing on the viewer. Speaking to Tribune TV Week, she explains giving the viewer what they want while also staying true to herself is key.

“The viewer is so smart,” she says. “They see right through it. If you’re trying to be someone you’re not, forget it. You’re going to be bounced off. It’s so important to be authentic and to be yourself. “It may be that someone says, ‘You know what, I don’t agree with that woman, but I like her because she’s actually telling me what she thinks. She’s herself, and I like it because she keeps it real.’ “So that’s what I’m trying to do, just to keep it real.”

Earlier this year, we went behind the scenes at Bartiromo’s Fox News/Fox Business shows. Watch after the jump.
