Fox Business’ beloved ‘Bulls and Bears’ host loses battle with cancer: A touching tribute

Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto delivered a moving and emotional tribute to his former colleague, Brenda Buttner, who passed away after a battle with cancer.

“No bravado. Just brave,” Cavuto said on “Your World” Monday, praising Buttner, who hosted Fox News Channel’s “Bulls and Bears.”

The 55-year-old financial reporter, who was based in New York, came to Fox in 2000, after hosting CNBC’s “The Money Club” and serving as the network’s Washington correspondent.

Buttner graduated from Harvard University in 1983 and graduated with high honors in politics and economics after becoming a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University.

“She took stock of life much more than any stock in life,” Cavuto said in his heartfelt salute. “It’s what separated her from everyone else in this business. Not just dollars, you see, Brenda had depth.”

Cavuto honored Buttner’s ability to cheer others on while she personally, and quietly, battled the “unrelenting cancer” that ultimately claimed her life.

“Let it be known that Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart. Her heart, her spirit,” he said. “She democratized dollars and just made sense.”

A video montage offering a glimpse of Buttner’s long career at Fox left Cavuto fighting back tears.

“When is the last time, the last time you laughed at a business show?” he said.

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

Condolences and memories were shared on social media by many who knew Buttner.
