Who is Cheryl Casone? What is her age?

Born Cheryl Cecile Casone under the sign of Cancer on the 18th of July 1970, in Clearwater, Florida USA, Cheryl is a 49-year old Caucasian journalist, TV news anchor and reporter. She draws most of her popularity from having been a regular financial contributor, as well as the national on-air anchor for the Fox Business Network for over 12 years now. She has also had some other successes throughout her extensive and generally lucrative journalism career since 1997.

Early life: Following her father

Cheryl was raised one of three children in a few places, mostly Phoenix, Arizona, and Dallas, Texas, by her father, who was a government engineering consultant, and her mother of an unknown profession, both of still undisclosed names.

Due to the nature of her father’s profession, Cheryl move a lot according to his contracts. As told by the anchor herself, she even lived in Sweden for a year at one point, but considers both Phoenix and Dallas her home. As for schooling, she matriculated from Phoenix’s Thunderbird High School in 1988, then enrolled into Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, from where she graduated in 1992 with a bachelor of science degree in public relations. Cheryl also started attending community college in San Francisco. California in 1997, initially wanting to go for a masters, but dropped out knowing that she already possessed the necessary expertise.

Career: An unexpected start

While Cheryl’s parents were ready for her to become a journalist, she still wasn’t at the time.

Instead of trying to find work at a local TV or radio station, she instead became a flight attendant, remaining with Southwest Airlines for five years, exploring the world continent by continent. Upon her arrival to San Francisco, California in 1997, Cheryl took to working with CNX Media, as part of the “Travel Update” program, which was nationally syndicated.

Casone then went to KRON-TV in the same area, where she served as a general and business assignment reporter, meanwhile also anchoring a business news show. She remained there for approximately four years, later moving to New York City to be a part-time anchor on MSNBC Live (July 2004), then transferred to CBS news in September the following year, for a freelance general assignment reporter position.

At the same time, she also became a freelance business correspondent for CNN, mostly from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Casone kept these two positions for another year, ultimately joining Fox News Network in November 2006.

The real start of her career

Cheryl entered Fox as an established name in journalism, and thus was immediately assigned a hosting position in “Cashin’ In”, besides that also hosting the hourly business web update called “Fox Business Now”, streamed on FoxNews.com and Yahoo, which informed viewers of the hottest new jobs and hiring companies in general. Her work primarily began on the Fox News Channel, where besides the aforementioned roles, she also served to cover breaking financial news, tech news, real estate news, and stock market updates, based in the Greater New York City Area.

In October 2007 Cheryl also became a correspondent and anchor for Fox Business Network, a national on-air anchor for the most important happenings related to business, while she also became the main Fox Business Network employee in charge of Wall Street and Main Street occurrences. Casone keeps both of these positions in early 2020, and has so far had the honor of reporting from various countries and interviewing many important figures. She was in Jordan, Syria, Israel among others, and in direct conversation with names such as Tony Blair, Hillary Clinton and Shimon Peres.

Cheryl’s recognition

Though she is yet to win an award, the prominent reporter has been seen in a number of influential programs.

She has a total of 27 credits for such appearances, including “Cavuto on Business”, “The Insider”, “America’s Election HQ”, “Trish Reagan Primetime”, and was a guest in “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” at one point.

Love life: Who is Cheryl Casone’s husband? Is she married?

Thus far, there have been no public records of Cheryl being married; the only man in her life who is somewhat known to the media is Joshua Henne. His profession is a mystery for the moment, but it is known that he and Casone are enjoying a romantic relationship. They haven’t announced any plans to further their union, and there hasn’t been any controversy about them.

Cheryl’s fight against cancer

Ever since Casone’s paternal grandfather developed cancer, and passed away in her relatively early youth, she has been afraid for her father as well. The fear unfortunately appeared to be reasoned in the end, as she lost her dad to the same illness. In September 2016, she tweeted ‘As someone who lost her Father & Grandfather to cancer: thank you #StandUpToCancer great message #hope #believe #CureCancer’.

Casone remains a cancer awareness activist, and often attends related events such as the 2018 Susan G Komen Greater NYC Race For Cure, which is an annual 3.1mile (5km) walk for awareness raising purposes. She attended alongside her Fox News anchor colleague Gerri Willis, who is battling with stage 3 lobular breast cancer.

Seeing as the disease is usually very likely to affect the closest family members, it’s quite fortunate that Cheryl hasn’t experienced any such issues so far. Regardless of her personal diagnosis, the famous business anchor insists that a permanent and absolute cure for the disease can be found.

A daughter’s honest gift

In spite of having no children herself, Cheryl has been rooting for mothers nation-wide with her tweets, but more importantly also with a book. Casone released “The Comeback: How Today’s Moms Re-enter the Workplace Successfully” in early May 2016, in which she talks about her own mother, and the hardships she had to endure to raise Cheryl and her siblings, mostly referring to how her mother re-started her career after giving birth four times.
