It’s a reminder that “talent” at the major business networks — CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg — tends to shift around a lot.
So we decided to take a walk down memory lane. Here are some then and now shots of some of the more recognisable financial journalists around.
And no lame 80s haircut was spared.
Recognise this child actress? She played Cassandra Ingalls on “Little House On The Prairie.”

It’s CNBC’s longtime anchor Bill Griffeth.
Here’s Neil Cavuto back in the day.
And Cavuto now, interviewing Richard Simmons on Fox News.
This anchor was one of CNBC’s first hires. Here she is in 1992 rocking some big hair, de rigueur for the era.
And that anchor again in 1997, sporting a new hairdo.
It’s Sue Herera, host of Power Lunch.
Check out Trish Regan as Miss New Hampshire back in 1993.

That’s Jim Cramer, of course, the energized host of Mad Money on CNBC.
