Brenda Buttner, host of Bulls and Bears on Fox News, has died after a battle with cancer, the network announced Monday. She was 55.
Colleague Neil Cavuto paid tribute during his show: "She took stock of life much more than any stock in life," he said. "It's what separated her from everyone else in this business. Not just dollars, you see, Brenda had depth."
He continued: "Let it be known that Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart. Her heart, her spirit. Business journalism is never going to be the same. I just don't know, now that she's gone, whether we'll ever be. Brenda Buttner, gone way too soon at 55."
Buttner joined Fox News in 2000 after a stint at CNBC, where she hosted The Money Club. She began her career as an anchor for KCRL-TV in Reno, Nev.
Other colleagues and fellow journalists paid tribute on Monday.
