the opportunity to grow as a journalist and stretch myself in ways

coverage of the political economy and analysis of major stories,
including the 2016 market reaction to the presidential election and
the origins of the Mueller Report.

marked its first yearly win over CNBC’s Squawk Box in total viewers
in 2018 and has remained one of the most affluent programs on
cable, according to Nielsen Media Research. Additionally, her FNC
program Sunday Morning Futures routinely ranks as the highest rated
show on Sundays in cable news.

Nielsen Media Research, the debate delivered 13.5 million total
viewers and 3.7 million in the key 25-54 demo, notching the
highest-rated program in FBN’s history. In January 2016, Ms.
Bartiromo reprised her co-moderator role, delivering 11 million
total viewers with 3 million in the key 25-54 demo, making it the
second highest-rated program in network history, according to
Nielsen Media Research.

of major industry conferences including the World Economic Forum in
Davos, Switzerland, the Cannes Lions International Festival of
Creativity in Cannes, France and the Annual JPMorgan Healthcare

most prominent leaders in business and economic policy including
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Oracle CEO
Mark Hurd, Bridgewater Associates Founder Ray Dalio, Microsoft

many others. Her unparalleled business coverage has also earned her
exclusive sit-downs with numerous heads of state, including
Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald
Trump, as well as the sitting presidents of Brazil, Russia,
Singapore, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
