by Chris Roush
Neal Ungerleider of FishBowl New York interviewed Fox Business Network anchor Nicole Petallides – who played Division I soccer in college for three years — about working at the new business news channel.

NP: At first the focus was about getting off the ground, and now the focus is on making it even better. People are persevering through the long hours and lots of work, and they’re still smiling. We’re adding new segments like “The Number” on Fox Business Morning where Ray Hennessey talks about the number that will be important on Wall Street and trading desks that day – whether it’s sales figures, jobs data or the price of oil.
