Thursday Profiling: McDowell and Geist

dagen_5-28.gif• FBN anchor Dagen McDowell is profiled by the Richmond Times Dispatch, and talks about her optimism regarding the financial crisis. “Americans are great because they can see the light at the end of the tunnel and will work their way out,” she said. “Ultimately, it’s the people that will turn this nation around.”

McDowell described how working for Fox Business Network allows her to connect with the average American. “If I can help make business interesting in the everyday lives of others,” she said, “I am thankful.”

Geist’s father, CBS News’ Bill Geist, says, “I’ve been in journalism for 35 years and Willie’s met more important people in the last year and a half, people of high level importance.”
