Fox Business anchor Liz Claman was featured in Haute Living, where she discussed her journalism style, risk taking and Silicon Valley.

I’m not going to sit in an air-conditioned studio in New York City just because Wall Street is down the street. I am going to get up, get on a plane and walk all over that area.

NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt sat down with Adweek‘s Jason Lynch to discuss his expectations for “Peter Pan Live!” and how he got “The Sound of Music Live!” approved by his boss.

I report to [NBCUniversal CEO] Steve Burke, who is the most supportive boss I’ve ever had. I think one day I told him, “We’re going to try this big, live, musical event for the holiday,” and he went, “Great.” He did unconditionally support it, but left it to us to figure out how much it was going to cost. At one point, I think I said to him, “I have no idea if this is going to sink or swim. It could be a disaster, and it’s not inexpensive. So we could be looking at a big, financial miss.” And he goes, “That’s OK. Let’s see what we get.”

FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto was been featured in Industry Magazine. He discussed market trends, media’s evolution and test audience (his wife).

I usually call my wife after each broadcast and ask her if she got it… if she picked up the points I was trying to make, because if she did, then I know I did my job.

Liz Claman Sits Down With ‘Haute Living’

Claman304-1 Haute Living recently sat down with Liz Claman, who hosts “Countdown to the Closing Bell” and “After the Bell” on the Fox Business Network. Claman spoke candidly about breaking into the industry, her limited financial background and what she would ask Steve Jobs.

Claman broke into the industry without any financial background by telling CNBC, “Anybody can learn numbers. Anybody can learn to read a balance sheet or an earnings report. But can you sit across from Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Charlie Munger, or Elon Musk and ask them the questions that elicit newsmaking answers?”

Since selling herself to CNBC, Claman has landed countless interviews, including Buffet and Gates. She parlayed her success into a role at Fox Business Network and says, “the cool thing about FOX is that they don’t ask why. They say, sure, why not. We’ve done some crazy things here!”

FBN’s Liz Claman: Trying to ‘Inform, Not Inflame’ as Ebola Rocks Markets

LizClamanFox Business Network anchor Liz Claman tells TVNewser she had a “jaw dropping, stomach-turning moment” Wednesday, watching the Dow drop on the heels of overnight reports a second health care worker had been diagnosed with Ebola:

Markets hate surprises, especially like that, and when European stocks opened, they suffered their biggest one-day slide since 2011.By the time U.S. markets began the trading session, the market was primed to become red-meat for the bears.

Within minutes, the Dow plunged more than 250, then 350 points. It was swift and ugly.
