Alexis Glick to leave Fox Business

December 23, 2009

Alexis Glick announced on the air Wednesday that she is going to leave Fox Business Network to pursue other interests.

“I know this is not the norm, but I don’t believe in abrupt departures,” said Glick on the air. “I want you guys to know that today will be my last day here at the Fox Business Network. I have enjoyed three fulfilling years of growth, learning, development, fun and games. How many people can say that they had the opportunity to help build a brand new network?

“Being the first new employee of FBN, seeing it grow today to over 300 extraordinarily talented people. It has been an experience of a lifetime. I am so proud of everyone here, of what we have accomplished. I wish all of you, all of my colleagues continued success in the future. I can tell you this — I’m about to embark on a new venture. It’s going to allow me to utilize the skills I’ve learned at Fox Business, Morgan Stanley, and the Today Show. I can’t give any details yet, but suffice it to say, I’m extremely excited about taking on yet another interesting and unique project.”

Glick is vice president of business news and was an anchor of “Money for Breakfast.”

Prior to joining Fox, Glick served as a correspondent for the Today Show and co-anchored the third hour of that program. Before her stint at NBC News, she was the senior trading correspondent for CNBC and reported from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, providing live daily updates for Squawk Box. While at CNBC, Glick also contributed to “Street Signs” and “Closing Bell.”

Earlier in her career, Glick was an executive director at Morgan Stanley where she headed the New York Stock Exchange Floor Operations. A member of the New York Stock Exchange since 2002, she was the first and youngest woman to manage such an operation for a bulge bracket firm, and served as one of its top producers on the Listed Equity Trading Desk. She began her career as an analyst at Goldman Sachs in the equities division.
