Since we’ve already ran through the lovely ladies at CNBC and Bloomberg TV, we couldn’t leave Fox Business Network behind.The fledgling network, which is an offshoot of Fox News Channel, only began broadcasting in 2007, so it’s the youngest of the financial news networks, but there’s no short of powerhouse anchors and reporters on staff.

Most recently, they’ve hired away notable journalists like Melissa Francis from more established network CNBC.

So check out the ladies that make this business network work…
