Gasparino on Murdoch: ‘One of the few (if not the only) media executives who understands convergence’

Fox Business Network’s senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino, who moved from CNBC to FBN this year, sat down for a quick Q&A today to talk about the business leaders that he admired the most. He started with the former CEO of General Electric: “Jack Welch is high on my list because he’s a straight shooter in a business filled with BS artists.”

He also mentioned his new boss, CEO of News Corp., Rupert Murdoch as a business leader that he looked up to:

“Now this is going to sound a little self serving, but also high on my list is Rupert Murdoch, even when I worked at the competition. And here’s why: he’s one of the few (if not the only) media executive who understands ‘convergence’ - namely that survival of modern journalism requires a combination of skills from its practitioners: broadcast tv, radio and print.”
