…and CNN and Bloomberg too, because at 4pm sharp she, and her boss Kevin Magee, were ringing the closing bell at the NYSE. Neither CNBC’s Dylan Ratigan (pre-bell), nor Maria Bartiromo (post-bell) made reference to their competition. But that’s not unusual. At the opening bell, CNBC’s Mark Haines might mention who is doing the honors, but rarely does CNBC mention who closes the session. Claman and FBN are on the left, the NASDAQ closing bell is on the right in the photo.
Claman actually anchored the last minute of her FBN show from the balcony before Magee did the honors with the gavel putting an end to this dreadful (even if you own oil stocks) trading day.
