Brenda Buttner, a Fox News senior business correspondent and anchor has died. She was 55. Colleague, Neil Cavuto tearfully announced the sad news Monday on his show.

Buttner took to Twitter in late 2015 announce her illness. She reportedly battled breast cancer which spread to other parts of her body. “I am battling cancer right now and hope to be back as soon as possible.” said Buttner to a Twitter fan in 2016.


“When is the last time you laughed at a business show? I don’t know,” Cavuto said, while choking up. “Business journalism is never gonna 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.” h/t heavy

She worked at Fox News for more than 16 years and was the host of “Bulls & Bears,” a Saturday morning business show. Buttner also often contributed to Cavuto’s show, “Your World With Neil Cavuto.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Buttner’s family and friends at this difficult time.
