In making the announcement, Magee said, 'Charlie thrives on holding Wall Street accountable and his tenacious, hard-nosed approach to journalism has made him one of the most respected reporters in the industry. We look forward to his continued success in breaking market-moving news'.
Joining the company in February 2010, Gasparino provides on-air reports for FBN and FNC on the latest news impacting Wall Street and the financial markets. As senior correspondent, he has covered major business stories including the collapse of MF Global and Knight Capital, and has interviewed such financial heavyweights as JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman.
In addition, he is widely recognized for breaking influential news surrounding the Lehman Brothers collapse, the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), and restructure initiatives at Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley. He has also been credited for noteworthy scoops related to the business of sports, namely news of pro-golfer Tiger Woods’ return to golf following his extramarital affairs and the New York City Marathon’s cancellation in 2012.
Gasparino commented, 'Unlike many other financial news outlets, FBN doesn’t play the Wall Street apology game, which gives me the freedom to do my job'.
Prior to FBN, he served as an on-air editor for CNBC and before that, he was senior writer for Newsweek magazine and a reporter at the Wall Street Journal where his work was submitted for a Pulitzer Prize in 2002.
