Fox Business Network’s Charlie Gasparino is profiled by The New York Daily News‘ Richard Huff, and the FBN reporter once again sets his sights on his former employer (and now chief competitor), CNBC:
“The goal here is to beat the hell out of CNBC,” he says. “To beat the established winner is so much more satisfying. It’s so much more exciting than it ever was at CNBC.
“I like to take on the big guys,” he adds. “I’ve been doing it my entire career. Before it was fashionable to beat up on Wall Street, I was doing it.”
The fact that the Fox Business is in fewer homes and has fewer viewers than CNBC only pushes him more.
Of course, as Huff notes, FBN still has an uphill climb against the market leader, though some ratings leaks seem to indicate it is making progress.
