Peter Kramer of The Journal News, based in Westchester County, profiled Bloomberg Television anchor Matt Miller in Tuesday’s paper.
Kramer wrote, “Miller starts most trading days at the New York Stock Exchange where he gathers tips from traders about the market’s direction. Every half-hour from 1 to 4 p.m., he’s back in front of the camera with ‘hits,’ telling viewers what’s occupying minds on Wall Street.
“Then he heads uptown to Bloomberg’s TV studios and his weeknight appointment anchoring ‘Bloomberg Rewind,’ a look at the day’s top stories in a program that bears his quirky signature.
“‘The 8 p.m. show is what I’m looking forward to,’ says Miller. ‘Most of the time when I’m down here, I’m talking to guys about ideas for ‘Rewind.’ ‘
“Consider it Bloomberg’s answer to ‘The Daily Show,’ he says, where Miller and his guests talk about what traders are talking about, in all respects.
