With the 2020 race upended, the stock market disrupted, and the Fed drastically dropping interest rates, NBC News Senior Business Correspondent Stephanie Ruhle (@SRuhle) breaks it all down from the inside. [1:07:05] And she sharply analyzes the spectacular collapse of Mike Bloomberg’s campaign from the perspective of someone who worked for him. This candid and fun conversation gives you insights into the mind and life of a charismatic leader who overcame tremendous adversity to rise to the top of business and political media. Uncensored and unscripted, the former homecoming queen, turned Wall Street derivatives trader, turned cable TV anchor, shares how she juggles work as a mother of three, the values her mother taught her that fuel her success, and why she loves tequila.
Ruhle is a dedicated philanthropist, a media trailblazer, a champion for the underdog — and a fantastically fun person to hang out with. The former anchor of MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle and Velshi & Ruhle, Ruhle was also managing editor and news anchor for Bloomberg Television and editor-at-large for Bloomberg News. She’s an advocate for a number of important causes including the Corporate Investment Bank (CIB) Women’s Network, Women on Wall Street (WOWS) and Girls, Inc–nonprofit organization that encourages all girls to be “Strong, Smart, and Bold” through direct service and advocacy.
Stephanie Ruhle is another important, inspiring and iconic American success story that embodies what this pod is all about.
