Marketwatch’s Jon Friedman interviews Neil Cavuto…
Pondering the business channel, I asked Cavuto what his biggest challenge was today. “Everything,” he answered wearily. Cavuto has been deluged with resumes and inquiries from prospective job-seekers.
Rupert Murdoch, the head of Fox parent News Corp. , joked that it could use its own “money honey,” a good-natured dig at Maria Bartiromo of CNBC.
Cavuto, though, would probably prefer to develop another Louis Rukeyser. Rukeyser, the late pioneer of business-news television, had a large following because of his trademark wit and sharp interviewing skills.
“He was always a likable, respected gentleman,” Cavuto commented.
Like his role model Rukeyser, he recognizes that the stock market isn’t always the main story.
