Fox Business Network has re-signed Charlie Gasparino to a multiyear deal.
Under his contract renewal, financial terms of which were not disclosed, Gasparino will remain in his role as senior correspondent for the business service, as well as Fox News Channel.
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.
Gasparino, prior to working for FBN, 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. He also has authored several best-selling financial books, including Bought and Paid For: The Unholy Alliance Between Barack Obama and Wall Street.
“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,” said executive vice president Kevin Magee in a statement. “We look forward to his continued success in breaking market-moving news.”
Noted Gasparino: “Unlike many other financial news outlets, FBN doesn’t play the Wall Street apology game, which gives me the freedom to do my job.”
