Gasparino signs with Fox Biz, debut is next week

February 16, 2010

As expected, former CNBC Wall Street reporter Charles Gasparino has signed a multi-year deal with Fox Business Network and will begin appearing on that business news channel starting next Monday, Feb. 22.

Gasparino will serve as a senior correspondent, appearing across all programming to provide market updates and breaking news reports.

“We are tremendously excited to have Charlie join the Fox Business family,” said executive vice president Kevin Magee in a statement. “His breaking news reports during the most recent economic crisis have proved invaluable and we look forward to adding his in-depth reporting to the network.”

Gasparino was the on-air editor at CNBC. He previously worked for Newsweek magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Bond Buyer, The Tampa Tribune and other publications.

While at The Journal, Gasparino was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in beat reporting in 2002 and won the New York Press Club award for best continuing coverage of the Wall Street research scandals. In 2003, he was nominated as part of a team of reporters for the paper’s coverage of the New York Stock Exchange, and the resignation of its former chairman, Richard Grasso.

Gasparino is the author of the book, “Blood on the Street,” which was a BusinessWeek bestseller and was listed by Barron’s as one of the best business books of 2005. Another book, “King of the Club: Richard Grasso and the Survival of the New York Stock Exchange,” about the New York Stock Exchange and Grasso, published in November 2007 by HarperCollins received rave reviews and was named by the Library Journal as one of the best business books of 2007.
