Alexis Glick on her Fox Biz workday
Alexis Glick is featured on the â€œmom blogâ€? Mommy Trackâ€™d on Yahoo! Work & Money Channel, where she talks about her typical workday at the Fox Business Network.
Here is an excerpt:
How many hours a week do you work?
I get in around 4am and finish my shows at 10am. I have management meetings or administrative work related to the show or the network, and I usually leave by early afternoon. But my blackberry is never off â€“the news business is a 24-hour job.
What are the best and worst parts of your job?
The best part is the people I meet and the things I learn. I read a couple hundred pages of research every morning to prepare myself for my two shows. I have met some very fascinating people.
The worst part of my job is the exceptionally early hours. I don’t get to see my kids before they go to school and I have to go to bed shortly after they do, around 8pm or 9pm.
Did your mother work? What did she do?
Yes, my mom worked my entire life and still does. She only had a 4 week maternity leave when she had me. She worked on Wall Street and was an assistant to many top executives over the years, including Sandy Weill, Peter Cohen and Bruce Ratner. She is currently an office manager and event planner at Forest City Ratner Enterprises.
