The host of Fox News Channel’s Bull and Bears, Brenda Buttner, has suddenly passed away at age 55 after a battle with cancer. According to Fox News, Buttner became part of the network in 2000 after blazing a trail for female business journalists on CNBC.
She was an honored graduate of Harvard University. Later on, she became a Rhodes academic, graduating with honors from Oxford University in the fields of politics and economics.Buttner was a regular on Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, and the host made a heartfelt tribute to his former associate on Monday’s program.
“She took stock of life much more than any stock in life,” Cavuto stated. “It’s what separated her from everyone else in this business. Not just dollars, you see, Brenda had depth.” The Fox News anchor said Buttner’s bucket list put most people’s to shame due to its focus on others.
Cavuto said that she was immensely proud of her two daughters.

“Let it be known that Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart. Her heart, her spirit,” Cavuto said. “She democratized dollars and just made sense.”
Many more of her Fox News associates also expressed their condolence.

“Business journalism is never going to be the same,” commented Cavuto on Monday. “I just don’t know, now that she’s gone, whether we’ll ever be. Brenda Buttner, gone way too soon at 55.”
