Ricardo Kaulessar of HedgeFund.net writes Friday about new Bloomberg Television reporter Stephanie Ruhle, who previously worked on Wall Street in the hedge fund business.

Kaulessar writes, “What has also gotten Ruhle acclimated to the broadcasting world were her new co-workers, whom she describes as ‘very smart’ and ‘generous.’

“So what is it like being a Bloomberg anchor?

“For Ruhle, it’s starting work at 4 a.m., leaving behind her husband and two small children at their Lower Manhattan home. Then it’s meeting with staff and others to prep for 6 a.m. show opening. After the program ends at 8 a.m. Ruhle and her colleagues are already preparing for the next day.

“Working daily in the news business has allowed her to not only bring her knowledge of the markets to the general public but also to explore topics as wide-ranging as Occupy Wall Street and the European debt crisis.

“And it is a job that she sees herself staying in for quite awhile.”
