NewsPro Names ’10 Most Powerful In TV Financial News’

NewsPro, a news trade magazine produced by the team behind, has announced its “10 Most Powerful in TV Financial News” for 2010.

All three cable business networks–CNBC, Bloomberg and Fox Business–made the cut, as did a number of talent from the channels. CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo and Jim Cramer are on the list, as are Bloomberg’s Margaret Brennan and FBN’s Neil Cavuto.

The broadcast networks were represented by PBS’ “Nightly Business Report,” CBS News correspondent Anthony Mason and legendary newsmagazine “60 Minutes:”

“60 Minutes” may not immediately come to mind when discussing the power players of business television, but upon analysis of many of its pieces, the weekly CBS news program packs a wallop.

In the past year, it has done at least 16 businessand economic-related stories. “60 Minutes” just recently scored two major “gets” of the most powerful people in their respective worlds, obtaining in-depth interviews with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — neither of whom are known for talking to the press.
