Stephanie Ruhle has been at Bloomberg TV only a month and already Business Insider is calling her “the most important new name in financial television.” Ruhle talks with the magazine about the differences between her previous profession, as a managing director at Deutsche Bank, and her current one:
So my complaint had been—especially during the crisis, I often felt like, do people in business news realize the weight their voice carries? And I think you hold that with a big responsibility. Here I’m really impressed with the integrity. I think it’s easy to get people to hear your voice if you’re saying a splashy headline. And I can even see myself—because when you’re not saying it on TV, if you’re just saying it amongst your friends, you can say something big and bold, because it doesn’t carry any weight. You’re sitting at a dinner table or you’re talking on a trading floor. When you say something on TV, you better be damn well sure what you’re saying is fact, because you could move a market.
