Neil Cavuto      

Business Journalist, Television Host & Author

The Wall Street Journal has called him the best interviewer in broadcast business news. Financial author James Glassman went so far as to write, the best interviewer on TV, period. And Jon Friedman of MarketWatch, called him the very soul of the new Fox Business Network.

As senior vice president, anchor and managing editor, Neil Cavuto oversees all business news content for both Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. He not only anchors programs on both networks, they are among the highest rated news shows on all of television.

His Your World market-closing broadcast on FNC is the most watched financial news program in America, and has been for the past ten years. At its hour, Your World beats CNBC, CNN, and MSNBC combined. His weekend wrap-up Cavuto on Business, is the second highest rated. Cavuto also oversees Bulls & Bears, Forbes on Fox, and Cashin In. Collectively they complete the top five financial programs on television.

And on Fox Business Network, his evening recap Cavuto is considered the signature closing business show of the day. His 2010 mid-term election night coverage for FBN represented a milestone event for the upstart financial channel, handily beating CNBC that same night, even though CNBC was available in twice as many homes.

Prior to coming to Fox News for the launch of the network back in August 1996, Cavuto anchored and hosted more than three hours of live programming daily for CNBC, including the networks highest-rated show, Market Wrap. He also served as a contributor to NBCs Today Show and NBC News at Sunrise. Before that, Cavuto was the New York Bureau Chief for PBS Televisions Nightly Business Report and a Washington Bureau Chief for Investment Age Magazine.

Cavuto has covered some of the most important business and political stories of our time, including the 9-11 attacks, the 2008 financial meltdown, the 1987 stock market crash, and both Persian Gulf Wars. He has reported first-hand on the economic policies of every American president since Jimmy Carter, and covered every major corporate scandal, from Enron to Tyco. In fact, Cavutos live prison interview with former Tyco Chief Executive Dennis Kozlowski was a business television first.

Yet with all his financial experience, when Cavuto decided to write his first book, he chose not to write about business at all, but about heroes who had overcome enormous hardship. Inspired by his own battle with cancer, and his ongoing fight with Multiple Sclerosis, that book, More Than Money: True Stories of People Who Learned Lifes Ultimate Lesson stunned the publishing world in 2004 and became a New York Times bestseller, as did his second book of reflections, Your Money or Your Life less than two years later.

A former White House intern during the Carter administration, Cavuto graduated from Saint Bonaventure University and received his masters degree from The American University. He and his wife Mary have three children, Tara, Jeremy and Bradley.
