Chris Quinn of the San Antonio Express-News writes about how Fox Business Network anchor Liz Claman has now down 1,000 episodes of “Countdown to the Closing Bell.”

Quinn writes, “‘Countdown’ covers the financial world for both savvy money men as well as the blue collar workers and small business owners that pin their futures to investments in their 401(k)’s and other retirement ventures.

“‘What we always wanted to do in this show is not act like a day trading show but to cater to everybody,’ she said. Claman also noted that she and those behind the show are always mindful of their audience and make sure they don’t throw out catchy ‘buzz words’ without explaining them.

“Now you can take a wild guess as to the other financial shows that might fall into the ‘buzz word’ category, but I have a hunch it is from the competition and comes with a balding head.

“Her style, Claman said, is more subdued — she doesn’t need to ‘yell and scream and wave my arms around’ to get her points across or deliver the news.”
