As the world continues to dissolve into chaos, sometimes it’s necessary to just stop and thank God for what you have. Proving that to be true is the horrible reality that a family is facing after a renowned Fox News Host recently died, and your prayers are needed.
Fox News has suffered a great loss after announcing that one of their female hosts was taken from this life too soon. According to reports, Brenda Buttner, a 55-year-old mother of two, recently lost her battle with cancer after being diagnosed in 2015.
Along with her family, millions of Americans will miss the beloved senior business correspondent of Fox News Channel’s “Bulls and Bears.” After 16 years on the network, and several more with other channels such as CNBC, where she hosted “The Money Club,” many across the country have been left deeply saddened by the loss of a “warm, welcoming, open-minded, and bright” woman.

As one would imagine, Fox News dedicated a portion of their broadcast time to pay their respects and share the incredible host’s story. Even better yet, Neil Cavuto, a longtime colleague of Buttner, carved out a chunk of his show, Your World, to give tribute to the incredible journalist who will be greatly missed by her family along with everyone at Fox News and in the industry.
“She took stock of life much more than any stock in life. It’s what separated her from everyone else in this business. Not just dollars, you see, Brenda had depth,” Neil Cavuto said during his segment. “Let it be known that Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart. Her heart, her spirit. She democratized dollars and just made sense.”
Neil went on to say that Buttner was actually so much more than the woman you saw on TV as PEOPLE went on to share her lesser known accomplishments:
Buttner graduated with honors from Harvard University with a B.A. in social studies and went on to become a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, where she graduated with high honors in politics and economics
“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,” Neil concluded. During a time when journalism is at risk as it treads the line between truth and propaganda, the loss of such a profoundly honest reporter is unfortunate beyond words.
What’s worse is the fact that her children will now have to navigate life without a mother as she was taken too soon. May God bless this family as we continue to pray that her children and loved ones find peace in times of such unspeakable loss.
