NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--
FOX Business Network (FBN) has re-signed Charlie Gasparino to a multi-year deal
where he will continue his role as senior correspondent for both FBN and FOX
News Channel (FNC), announced Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President of the
network. 

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

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. A recipient of
