How Charles Payne Taught Himself About Wall Street

Charles PayneFox Business Network’s Charles Payne talks to the OC Register about how he first became interested in Wall Street, a passion which eventually would lead him to a job in finance, a contributor gig at CNBC and ultimately his own FBN show:

Raised the first dozen years of his life on Army bases where his father was stationed, it was an idyllic childhood, he says. “Always living on these wonderful military bases, I never knew crime, or locking doors,” Payne says. “I never really knew violence. And then I came home one day from school and my mom said, ‘Hey, we’re leaving.’ ”

His parents’ divorce when he was 12 resulted in the culture shock of Payne and his mother and two younger brothers moving into a one-room apartment in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City. As the oldest kid, Payne says he started working to help his mother provide. “I sorta hustled,” he says. “Bought paper towels and Windex and cleaned windows at stoplights. I got a job in a bodega. I went door-to-door shoveling snow in winter.”

From his neighborhood he knew little of Wall Street, he says. “Except I knew that was where all the money was made,” Payne says. “And any chance I had to get the Wall Street Journal, I would read it and read it. I started learning to teach myself about it.”

Charles Payne’s Pledge to Help Teens Get Jobs

Charles Payne is using a recent personal experience as motivation to help young job-seekers. On his Fox Business show this week, Payne recounted a story of seeing his godson coming back from a job interview in a suit and a black dress shirt.

“It really bothered me that he didn’t know to wear a white shirt, and then after we talked about it he said, ‘well, I don’t have a white dress shirt,’ so I decided I wanted to help,” Payne said. “Any New York City teen graduated from high school going straight into the job market, if you don’t have enough money to get a white dress shirt, go to Portabella on White Plains Road in the Bronx, ask for a Dr. Manuel. I’ve already pre-paid for 50 of these shirts — you’re going to get a shirt, and a tie, and a little hanky, too.”

Payne also encouraged the teens to bring their resumes, which he said would be looked at by a team of experts. Watch:


Charles Payne Shifts From Contributor to Anchor at FBN

Charles PayneWhen Charles Payne gets recognized on the street, he often gets told something along the lines of, “I love you on TV, but I’m not in the stock market.”

“Everybody’s in the market,” Payne told TVNewser this morning, citing examples of people who use Apple laptops or drive Ford cars. “What you have to figure out is – do you always want to be on the consumer side of it?”

Bridging the divide between Main Street and Wall Street is a cornerstone of Fox Business Network, and it will be one of the “great goals” of Payne’s new show, “Making Money with Charles Payne,” which debuts tonight at 6pmET.

“There’s a distinction between Wall Street, the physical place downtown … and Wall Street, the place where you can go and start to pick out great American companies to become a part owner of,” Payne said.

Payne says he sees a “two-pronged challenge” for himself: bringing down the intimidation factor of Wall Street and convincing people that it is still worthwhile to invest. He says he will accomplish this without falling victim to some pet-peeves of business television, including “an obsession with fast money, crazy terms you don’t know, someone telling you you’re going to crash.” Read more
