The most famous business journalist in the world – Maria Bartiromo – started her career as a production assistant at CNN. She was pulling the overnight shift for years before moving on to become a producer.
Maria did every line production job in the place and then got “promoted” behind the scenes. And hated it. So she put an audition tape together, applied for an on-camera reporting job at the then-fledgling network CNBC, and got it.
Lou Dobbs, her boss at CNN who had given her a promotion to a senior producer position, was not happy with her departure. In fact, he told her that she was making the biggest mistake of her life.
This interview is part of our Leadership series, presented with limited commercial interruption.
