Kirsten Sanchez of The Bronx Times profiles Fox Business Network senior reporter Charles Gasparino, who is a Bronix native.

Sanchez writes, “Gasparino returned to New York after graduating with a Master’s degree in journalism and started his career in print journalism as a senior writer at Newsweek magazine where he broke major stories involving Wall Street and corporate America, including developments at the New York Stock Exchange under Richard Grasso and former New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer’s crackdown on corporate crime.

“Gasparino also served as a writer for The Wall Street Journal, earning him a New York Press Club award for best continuing coverage of the Wall Street research scandal.

“Prior to joining Fox Business Network, he was also an on-air editor for CNBC, responsible for breaking some of the biggest stories during the financial crisis.
