NEW YORK -- March 6, 2013

FOX Business Network (FBN) has re-signed Charlie Gasparino to a multi-year
deal where he will continue his role as senior correspondent for both FBN and
FOX News Channel (FNC), announced Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President of the
network.

In making the announcement, Magee said, “Charlie thrives on holding Wall
Street accountable and his tenacious, hard-nosed approach to journalism has
made him one of the most respected reporters in the industry. We look forward
to his continued success in breaking market-moving news.”

Joining the company in February 2010, Gasparino provides on-air reports for
FBN and FNC on the latest news impacting Wall Street and the financial
markets. As senior correspondent, he has covered major business stories
including the collapse of MF Global and Knight Capital, and has interviewed
such financial heavyweights as JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and Morgan
Stanley CEO James Gorman. In addition, he is widely recognized for breaking
influential news surrounding the Lehman Brothers collapse, the Troubled Asset
Relief Program (TARP), and restructure initiatives at Goldman Sachs, Merrill
Lynch, and Morgan Stanley. He has also been credited for noteworthy scoops
related to the business of sports, namely news of pro-golfer Tiger Woods’
return to golf following his extramarital affairs and the New York City
Marathon’s cancellation in 2012.

Gasparino commented, “Unlike many other financial news outlets, FBN doesn’t
play the Wall Street apology game, which gives me the freedom to do my job.”

Prior to FBN, he served as an on-air editor for CNBC and before that, he was
senior writer for Newsweek magazine and a reporter at the Wall Street Journal
where his work was submitted for a Pulitzer Prize in 2002. A recipient of
numerous business journalism awards, he has authored several best-selling
financial books including the most recent Bought and Paid For: The Unholy
Alliance Between Barack Obama and Wall Street.
