Jersey girl Liz Claman (okay, she’s really from SoCal, but she’s B & T these days…and damn proud of it) is featured in NJ Monthly‘s Park Place Magazine. Claman, who once had a sweet commute up the Hudson River to CNBC, lives in Edgewater, NJ, a stone’s throw from Fox colleague Geraldo Rivera.
When she trained for the New York City Marathon as a way to figure out her next career step, she didn’t even know Fox Business Network existed, but as soon as she heard about it, she quit CNBC. After she sat out the three months of her non-compete clause, Fox came calling.
“When you have a chance to work for a visionary, you don’t just say no. These opportunities come along once in a lifetime,” she says.

And over on Shine, the Yahoo! women’s network, FBN’s Alexis Glick did a Q and A with the Mommy Track’d blog:
You were seven months pregnant when you first began appearing on television. What was it like starting your first TV job while pregnant?
Glick: “It was wild! I had no training, no knowledge of cameras, television language or prompters. It was exhilarating, scary and memorable.”
